Price: Not Available
ISBN: 9788857208633
Description: Milan: Skira, 2011. 31cm., hardcover, 398pp. illus., most in color. Summary: David Breuer-Weil studied at the Central Saint Martins School of Art and Clare College, Cambridge. From the late 1980’s until the late 1990’s he worked as a specialist in Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary art at Sotheby’s, 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.
