“Weber's recent paintings are the result of what can be called premier coup, first touch, and suggest strong technical affinities with a process known as monotype. The artist applies a light wash of oil paint to evoke the effects of hazy sky, light on water, and the various changes and differences occurring in both the atmosphere and the landscape. There is a delicacy to these largely monochromatic paintings that is generated by the process of immediacy Weber uses, by her ability to register both suddenly shifting tonalities and broad shifts in the way light changes as it passes through the atmosphere… The result is a sensuality that is simultaneously solid and elusive, bold and restrained, celebratory and ascetic”
