Project 4 - David Breuer-Weil
21 March 2013
Artist David Breuer-Weil has been working on an epic scale since the mid 1990’s, exhibiting dramatic sculptures at the likes of Hanover Square and Chatsworth House. Perhaps his most ambitious project to date is now on display at The Vaults gallery in South West London - a collection of 70 canvases! Fusing themes of place, time and cause, Breuer-Weil has combined dramatic colours in an investigation of the artist’s role as commentator and creator. Motifs spanning across humanity, philosophy and politics are visible within a simultaneously absurd and emotional language. This collection will be on display until 24th March, 2013.
Ahead of the exhibition, our Artist Surfaces team was delighted to provide a re-stretching service for David to prepare the canvases for display. Over time, canvas stretchers can warp and distort. When this happens, it is necessary to replace the stretchers and re-stretch the artwork into position, ensuring the corners are completely square. Taking the time to carry this out reduces the risk of long-term damage to the artworks and protects the financial value of the collection.
