Representational fabric collage
August 4 - September 25, 2015

Leni Wiener is an internationally renowned fabric artist, having displayed her work in the US, Europe, Africa and Asia. "My work can best be described as representational fabric collage. Although I am moved by the beauty of nature, I am most inspired by the people around me."
This exhibit started with photographs of people sitting on park benches, taken on her worldly travels."

Creative dimensions in wood

Both of these artists create their sculptures from wood. But beyond this similarity, the results are very different.
Christian carves his pieces from whole blocks of wood, allowing you to discern the original materials beyond the shape and decoration.
Peter builds his pieces up from base materials and adds visual and structural texture in the process.

Artist statement

“Each day working in my studio I start not knowing what image will emerge. I allow myself the freedom of indecisions, improvisations, and impulsiveness in my work, and that leads to exciting discoveries. Subjects of my encaustic (hot wax) work are non-objective and figurative painting and printmaking.

I’m impatient by nature, my process is intuitive, I most enjoy the journey of creating, figuring out what works, what to keep, and what to abandon, until the piece works for me. I have no compulsion to save every work I do. Many become the layered history for a new piece. Creating art energizes me, its a place where time is altered, where all my feelings and emotions appear at some time or another; pleased, tired, upbeat, excited, harried, surprised, and hopefully at some point, satisfied.”
