Austin Wellner received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from Lawrence University in 2016. His works leans towards examining, tweaking, and re-contextualizing boundaries between multidisciplinary frameworks, often times with books and sculpture. Thinking of art making as perhaps a lesson in controlled disappointment, he makes pieces that deal with the failures of trying to create things that are novel and original. He is currently pursuing an MA/MFA in the Dimensional Practice area at the School of Art and Art History as well as a graduate certificate in Book Arts and Book Studies through the University of Iowa Center for the Book.
