Brea Weinreb is a visual artist and writer whose work explores themes of sexuality, kinship, cosmology and mysticism in relation to queer bodily experience. Her friends often play the role of subject in her large scale figurative paintings, creating a performative exchange that is evident in the poses and expressions captured.
Brea received her dual BFA in Art Practice and English from the University of California, Berkeley in May 2016. Her work has recently been exhibited at CounterPulse (San Francisco), Artist’s Television Access (San Francisco), Piedmont Center for the Arts (Piedmont), ONE ONE SIX TWO (Los Angeles), MCLA Gallery 51 (Massachusetts), Healdsburg Center for the Arts (Healdsburg), Merced College Art Gallery (Merced), amongst others. She works out of Norton Factory Studios in Oakland, California.
