Breuer-Weil’s interest in creating art that expresses ambiguous or multiple meanings has been a fixation for the artist. Flight addresses the artist’s obsession with creating the impression of a flying man in sculpture representing the weightlessness and freedom of an airborne man in bronze. That he chose bronze, a static medium that usually represents weight and place is challenging enough, but of its associations, ‘flight’ can suggest everything from freedom or escape to the “quintessential modern image; the human on the move.” As for the tented spindly poles that pretend to lift the figure aloft sans support, Breuer-Weil has pointed to that thematic motif as representing our ties with other people as well as ties to our past. Breuer-Weil has authorized Flight to be cast in an edition of 3 plus 1 artist proof.
