Bless 7

2013 – Oil on canvas – 110 x 150 cm (93.3 x 59.1 in)

According to Christian culture, every one has a guardian angel, who accompanies the human being from birth to death, staying at its side at every moment of its life. The idea of a supernatural entity that follows and supervises every human being, was already present in other religions and in Greek philosophy. In his series „Bless“ Philipp Weber also shows one of those guardian angels. It is a modern one, of course: A young woman dressed in a white top and shorts of denim but with beautifully painted white wings. Sitting on a rock she gazes at the viewer directly. Does she look sad or angry? Or even punitively? In any case this heavenly help shares the emotions of the one was sent out to protect.
