Brea Weinreb

Brea Weinreb, she/her (b. 1994, Long Island, New York) is a figurative painter based in Los Angeles. Her paintings depict and decode moments of camaraderie, solidarity, performativity and exclusivity amongst men. Following in the tradition of grassy leisure paintings by 20th century French artists such as Cézanne and Manet, Weinreb paints scenes of male homosocial leisure, observing groups of gay men from the artists own queer female gaze. Weinreb approaches these scenes with a tender yet voyeuristic lens, examining themes of community, belonging, gender performativity and the various ways consumption fuels connection.
