Description

This is the first complete monograph devoted to the work of one of Britain's most powerful and original contemporary artists. David Breuer-Weil studied at the Central Saint Martins School of Art and Clare College, Cambridge. From the late 1980s until the late 1990s he worked as a specialist in Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary art at Sothebys, London and as a curator for de Pury and Luxembourg Art in Geneva. He subsequently embarked on the epic series of apocalyptic works now known as the Project, over three hundred monumental paintings, a cycle that is arguably one of the most profound and consistent achievements in recent British painting. His determination to produce an art that deals with momentous and challenging themes is a reaction to a world he knows well, in which art often seems to be reduced to a commodity: In my own work I consciously avoided the high polish, commercial, slick look of much contemporary art. I wanted to produce colossal, un-commercialized images of existential doubt. This lavishly illustrated monograph presents a collection of paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations and studio shots.show more
