Panman Gallery , The Art Interactive experience with Mark Wiener and Etienne Charles

in the Penthouse of the Roger Smith Hotel reflects an exploration

into Art, Jazz and video experimentation.

 

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 photography. Driven by the ideas of 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 approach to painting he calls, “the white table” - an acting out of a visual story during the creation of the work - which became 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.
