David Breuer-Weil's work can be seen across London this summer at significant galleries

LONDON.- Works by renowned British artist David Breuer-Weil can be seen this summer at Somerset House and other significant galleries across London. Perhaps best-known for his monumental sculpture Alien that has been in Grosvenor Gardens for two years, David Breuer-Weil’s work has been exhibited across the world.

As part of Out of Chaos, Ben Uri: 100 Years in London, at Somerset House, Breuer-Weil’s maquette for Visitor (2010) is being exhibited amongst Jewish masterpieces. This centenary exhibition showcases a group of rarely seen works mainly by Jewish émigré artists, including Mark Gertler, David Bomberg, Jacob Epstein, Frank Auerbach, Leon Kossoff, R B Kitaj and, the first Jewish Royal Academician, Solomon Hart.

This is not the only opportunity to view Breuer-Weil’s works. Alongside their current Expressionisten exhibition, E & R Cyzer are showing a number of his recent sculptures including Brothers, Invisible Man and a small-scale version of Alien. Also on display is the painting Family which depicts groups of figures joined by an underlying genetic structure. These works are shown alongside paintings by masters of German Expressionism, including Kirchner and Jawlensky. Breuer-Weil comments, my father was born in Vienna and I have always felt strong affinities with German artists of the pre-World War II period, especially in their courageous desire to confront uncomfortable subjects.

Breuer-Weil’s new sculpture Flight can be seen for the first time, along with a number of recent drawings, at Stern Pissarro’s Pissarro to Hirst, Works on Paper. Flight depicts an airborne man, the quintessential modern image: the human on the move. Breuer-Weil’s skills as a draftsman are also clearly apparent here. He has devoted a large part of his artistic life to working in the most basic medium of pencil on paper where he feels there is nowhere to hide.

Breuer-Weil comments, In these various exhibitions I want to show my commitment to drawing, painting and sculpture as media that go hand in hand. In today’s world of technology it has never been more important to express the human spirit through works made by the hand in pencil, paint and clay, to maintain the human touch and texture. In the long term that is what remains alive in a work of art. In some of the sculptures, such as Flight and Brothers I show the invisible strands that join people together. All of these works, shown in different venues, express the idea of communication or lack of it.
