Idelle Weber is best known for her silhouette painting resembling the visual language of advertisements, which linked her with Pop art. Her work captures outlines of figures—such as businessmen, secretaries, and travelers engaged in mundane, everyday activities—against colorful flat or patterned backgrounds. The silhouette renders the figures anonymous, making them archetypes of the capitalist system, suggesting standardization and lack of individuality. Late in her career, Weber shifted towards Photorealistic landscapes and outdoor still lifes of trash, carts, rocks, and other urban detritus.
