“It is difficult to think of any series of contemporary British paintings more ambitious in form and content than the large symbolic canvases of David Breuer-Weil.” – The Times
Glorious and fascinating portrait of “one of Britain’s most powerful and original contemporary artists” (The Times). David Breuer-Weil, whose giant apocalyptic canvases and monumental public sculptures have earned him worldwide acclaim.
We join Breuer-Weil at work in his Hampstead studio… at his place of study, Cambridge… and in the forests and beaches of his mother’s childhood home in Denmark.
All the time he is creating, musing, revealing… why he does what he does, how the Holocaust fuels his work, what is his personal Garden of Eden and why he has ruled an imaginary kingdom of Nerac since childhood.
