Prenup, 2019

Austyn Weiner is a multimedia artist whose practice denotes and engages a recourse in chaos. Weiner’s practice explores A duality of forces that are influential and abject to the subjective mind; romance, rejection, isolation, and performance. Weiner’s use of charcoal, house paint, crayon, acrylic, oil paint, and oil stick, suggest a disposition of combative struggle and distressed victory.
