If You Ever Needed a Piece of Me
Scott Wistinghausen was raised in Hartland, Michigan, and is a visual artist concentrated in drawing and oil painting. Predominantly, Wistinghausen explores the appearance of the human form and how it relates to the human experience. Wistinghausen studied at Albion College where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in both Studio Arts and Finance. His work has earned him several awards including the Willemae Cheek Endowed Scholarship and the Richard L. and Barbara J. Meyer Research Endowment. His artwork has been selected for juried exhibitions at venues such as the Crooked Tree Art Center, Suzanne Haskew Art Center, and the Michigan Arts and Eats Festival. Additionally, Wistinghausen has served as a studio assistant to established working artists such as Michael Dixon and Brandon Lacow. Wistinghausen’s work addresses the intimately connected relationships of masculinity, vulnerability, and understanding.
Wistinghausen’s painting was the cover art for the Albion Review 2020 & 2021 print double-issue, and we are honored to share his work on the online edition as well.
