Daniel Wiesenfeld

I create narratives which deal with (self-)perception, memory and a sense of time on an individual as well as a collective level. The visual language of a specific work depends on its content. Lately I’ve become interested in breaking out of the rectangular border, extending into space and building painting-objects that include different light sources with combinations of glass and oilpainting. My mostly figurative paintings and installations combine found material with invented imagery.

Daniel Wiesenfeld (*1969 in Buffalo, NY) studied painting at the Akademie der Künste, München (Diploma 1993) and Queens College, NY (MFA 1996). Since 2000 he lives and works in Berlin. His work has been shown at the Haus der Kunst München, Jüdischen Museum Berlin, Supermarket Art Fair Stockholm, Galerie Huuto Helsinki, Klowden Mann Gallery Los Angeles, Roulette New York among others. He is the co-founder of the project space HilbertRaum, Berlin and the director of B - LA CONNECT, an exchange project between Berlin and Los Angeles based artists.
