Daniel Wiener recently was awarded a Guggenheim fellowship. Wiener’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, in both group and one-person shows, notably at Bravin/Post Lee Gallery in New York and at Acme Gallery in Los Angeles. Presently, he is affiliated with Lesley Heller workspace on the lower east side of New York City. While known primarily for his intense and viscerally arresting sculptures, Wiener also works in watercolors, 3D animation, and website design.
“Many of my recent pieces are quite small and hang from the ceiling from filament, seeming to float, perhaps like islands floating in the air. I want a lexicon of transformations. or self-transformations. The sculptures can look as if they are transforming themselves; the little ending or strange addition is a consequence of, or intrinsic to, the shape it is connected to. I think it’s impossible to think about transformations without expectations.”

Please join our Press Community just up and running as of this week! You can join a group right away, while registering. We’re looking forward to growing a community of creative folk who can share their own resources, ideas, and as well cross-post from their own sites for added exposure – if a post catches our eye, we might feature it on our home page.
