Mark Wiener

Mark Wiener (b. New York City, 1951) is an abstract painter who studied under Bauhaus influences at Philadelphia College of Art, where he focused on painting and photog¬raphy. Driven by visionaries Alexi Brodivitch, Frank Zachry and Alexander Lieberman, he developed an open mind toward working in simultaneously in several disciplines.

Devoting his first years to photography, Wiener, based upon observations of Irving Penn’s process, he conceived an ap¬proach to painting he calls, “the white table” - an acting out of a visual story during the creation of the work - which be¬came and remains a driving force, alongside the Bauhaus ideal of the underlying structure in concert with natural spontaneity. In Wiener’s latest works it is manifest as his organic gesture of throwing, dripping and pouring paint, orchestrated between drawing and painting layers of geometric objects.

Based in Manhattan, Mark Wiener exhibits in internationally.

His work appears in numerous public, private and corporate collections worldwide. Honors include participation in the Felissimo Tribute 21 program benefiting UNESCO, com¬missions for United Nations, Commemorative, “Transportation ”, 1997 and Croix de Croix de Chevalier de’orde Belgo Hispanique under the patronage of Queen Fabiola of Belgium.
