Scott Patrick Wiener (b. 1977. Baltimore, MD) spent most of his early life traveling from one military base to another, never spending more than four years in one place at a time. The work he produces is a direct result of an attempt to hold onto time and place to stabilize it. He proceeds accordingly by using lens-based media to reference past personal or socio-historic events reinforcing their antagonistic specificity as objects in the present. He has attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (Class of 2010) and is the recipient of a 2009-10 DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) Scholarship for Fine Arts in Leipzig, Germany. Wiener has shown both nationally and internationally and currently resides in Boston, MA where he teaches at Brandeis University, Middlesex and Bunker Hill Community Colleges.
