    Fall

    Artist: Sam Weiner
    Date: 2009
    Material: Wood Sculpture Installation
    Location: Bishop Woods School. 1481 Quinnipiac Avenue.

    Sam Weiner’s work is one of the few purely abstract works of art commissioned under the Percent for Art program in New Haven. Over the past thirty years this New York-based artist has worked across various mediums, and been an educator, and a MacDowell Fellow (1991) and a Banff Center for Arts Fellow (1997). The hanging sculpture Wiener created for the lobby of Bishop Woods School consists of large pieces of wood painted bright red, which change direction due to air movement. From the center of the abstract red “arms” floats a green sphere, which the artist says “may be thought of as a seed, suggesting regeneration.” Though Wiener also says that “the predominant red of the branch forms, their motion and the single send sphere below, all suggest woods in the fall season” (hence the title of the work), “that’s as far as I want to go with suggestions of representation.”
