ABOUT BLESS RESISTANCE

Artist: Philipp Weber

Land of Origin: Germany

In this portrait it is difficult to dissect the woman’s intense glare, but only because passion and anger can be visual sisters with equal intensity. She could be earner for engagement or held in am animalistic stance of self protection. Still present is the wound on her collarbone but this time she is positioned to fight back.

In Christianity, “Susanna at the Bath”, tells of a beautiful married Jewish woman in Babylon, who was spied upon in her own garden by two old Babylonian judges. As she refused to indulge their desires, they falsely accused her of adultery with a young man, a crime punishable by death. The model’s continued glare is a lantern of mysterious light that could only be dimmed by the calmness of maturity. Philipp Weber’s spiritual context finds itself lending an old world style and mood to an otherwise contemporary and exceptional work.

Bless Resistance reminds us that no socially shared movements existed on behalf of women in biblical days past.

ABOUT THE MASTER-GICLÉES

We use the highest possible, colour tested printing process in the IBEX ArtLab. The Master-Giclées are overseen by the artists themselves to ensure that they are exactly as the artists want them. All used materials for the Master-Giclées are acid-free, so they will not turn yellow or go brittle. We use archival pigment inks which have the longest lifespan of any ink currently known.

At IBEX, we believe in providing the highest quality Master-Giclées to match the high quality of our artists. All pieces are produced in our own print, varnishing and framing facilities in Germany. From start to finish each work of art is handled personally by a master printer with more than 20 years of experience in the fine arts.
