After the successes of the London exhibition with Christie’s in 2017, David Breuer-Weil has now installed Flight in Marble Arch.
This latest sculpture depicts the virtually impossible – a magical sculpture of a flying man taking off. While sculpture, especially bronze, is often thought to represent weight and place, the image of the flying man represents the opposite – weightlessness and freedom. Flight shows an airborne man – the quintessential modern image of a human on the move. In today’s world, nobody is bound to one particular place and we think nothing of travelling thousands of miles in one day.
Breuer-Weil comments, “I fly all the time and produce a large number of my drawings and small paintings when in flight. Flying frees the mind. Human aspiration and ambition have always been represented by the idea of flying. But it is also about human and artistic freedom, the possible flights of the imagination where anything is possible.”
