Press Release

For her exhibition CLEAR CUT, Karin Weiner has created sculpture and large collaged works on paper,
which focus on the creation of utopian environments within a world of suburban expansion. Weiner
compiles images found in sources ranging from real estate catalogs to National Geographic and field
guides purchased on Ebay, and combines them with her own drawing and painting techniques. Weiner's
nostalgia for the handmade objects of her youth coalesce with the informed social concerns of her adult
life, resulting in a series of playful sculptures and collages portraying a nameless Eden.
Karin Weiner recieved her MFA from Hunter College in 2003 and recently relocated from Brooklyn, New
York, to rural Vermont. She has held solo exhibitions at ZieherSmith in New York, and Lisa Boyle Gallery
in Chicago as well as group exhibitions in New York, Boston, Chicago, and Vienna. Publications
featuring reviews of her work include Frieze 101, The New Yorker, The Boston Globe, The New York Sun
 The New York Times, and Artforum.com.
