Barbara Weil (Chicago, 1933 - Port d'Andratx, 2018) devoted her life to art.  Most of her highly personal work was produced in Port d'Andratx (Mallorca), where she lived and worked since 1972.  Weil was mainly influenced by abstract expressionism and American painting from the latter half of the 20th century.  Her work is vividly gestural with an impulsive attitude inside the plastic and formal realm, but simultaneously very conscious and conceptual in its deployment in time.

Authors, Baltasar Porcel, Camilo José Cela and Helen McNeil praised her aesthetic sensitivity, her gender awareness and her spirituality, highlighting her connection to the island of Mallorca through color.  A decisive turning point was her decision to commission architect Daniel Libeskind to design her a studio in Port d’Andratx.  Libeskind in close collaboration with the American artist created this magnificent building that complements Weil’s work in a symbiotic way.

Studio Weil opens its doors to the public, inviting one to experience the building and to visit the work contained within. The objective is to implement the space for further artistic diffusion and creation, acting as a beacon of contemporary creation on the island of Mallorca.
