About Childish Scenes
In this short series of 5 images, Childish Scenes, 2019, Wiener has again used photographic masks. Usually Wiener colours his masks to give a hand coloured effect, but this time the masks have been used in their "raw" black and white form. along with other black and white images that have been used in the composition. The faces in the masks were drawn from a personal archive of family photographs and school photographs. In this series childhood memories are explored which Wiener shares with his sister and others he grew up with.
