Milliande Artist Spotlight :THe visionary art of David Breuer Weil
|David Breuer Weil BIO exerpt ..|
" ...David Breuer-Weil was born in London in 1965 and grew up in North London.
From an early age he was privy to discussions about the traumas of the earlier generation,
and these were a clear influence on his artistic vision in later years. B
reuer-Weil attended Jewish preparatory and secondary schools,
where the emphasis on art was fairly minimal, but he had plenty of inspiration at
home from his father, a successful sculptor, painter and jewellery designer who
encouraged his talent from an early age
.....Whilst in Israel he experimented with different styles,
but the radiance of the light and local colours gave birth to a series of landscapes
and abstractions that were painted in primary colours .
..he started using these colours in conjunction with the more personal figural imagery
he had developed over many years in his small, stamp-sized works on paper-his Neracian works. ...
But their cheerful colours masked the deeply serious imagery of many of these works,
as Judith Glass, reviewing the artist’s November 1994 exhibition at the Boundary Gallery
in 1994 observed: “The titles may conjure up scenes of domestic charm, but this is a compendium
of Freudian allegory and interpretation” (November 18, 1994).
many of these pieces use the imagery of layers that become increasingly
prevalent in later works. But here the layers seem to represent the aspect of
living in two physical locations simultaneously. ..."
