Exhibition Description

Weil exhibited paintings which were related to the horizon. Regarding “Stretched and Soft Horizon,” 1972, the artist states “This painting consists of two balanced segments; the surfaces are as similar as possible. In the first stretched element the painting is of the sky, horizon, and earth; it is formal painting itself. The second soft half is the painter’s imge with the framework removed, but the horizon line remains straight instead of softly following the folds of the cloth. It amazes me that few people realize that they are seeing this illogical sight. In a way, that is lazy looking, but in another way this shows that the power of the horizon is such that it seems natural for it to oppose the softness.”
