Hollis Taggart is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition of works by Idelle Weber and Aurora Robson. REMNANT ROMANCE, ENVIRONMENTAL WORKS will feature photorealist oil paintings and watercolors by Weber (1932-2020) alongside new multimedia sculptural work by Robson (b. 1972), who studied the late artist’s work while creating new pieces for the exhibition. Remnant Romance will create a dialogue between the artists, who, despite working in different media and being part of distinct generations, both draw inspiration from trash and seek to find beauty in the remnants of other peoples’ lives. Remnant Romance, Environmental Works: Idelle Weber and Aurora Robson will be on view at Hollis Taggart at 521 West 26th Street from January 14 through February 20, 2021.

One of the few women involved in the Pop Art movement, she captured the anonymity of corporate life in silhouettes. She later turned to realism.
