Denise Bibro Fine Art presents David Eisenhour: Biophilia, the artist’s New York City premiere, on view in our Platform project space November 12 through December 19, 2009. Eisenhour’s cast bronze and stainless steel sculptures exalt primordial organic forms, motivated by the impact of the natural world on our psyche. The artist begins his creative process by placing various organic materials under a microscope, taking inspiration from the complex repetitive patterns and textures that are inherent to growth and life. He does very little sketching, proceeding directly from what he observes to three dimensions, employing the lost wax method and his own patina techniques. Eisenhour notes, “Through sculpting realistic portraits of organic life taken greatly out of context and scale, I hope to reconnect the viewer with a sense of awe for nature.”
Eisenhour has mounted solo exhibitions at Lyndsay McCandless Contemporary Gallery, Jackson, WY; Pitcairn Scott Gallery, Seattle, WA; and Martin Andrews Gallery, Port Townsend, WA. Two person shows include Waterworks Gallery, Friday Harbor, WA; Smith & Vallee Gallery, Edison, WA; Roby King Gallery, Bainbridge Island, WA; and Northwind Arts Center, Port Townsend, WA. Eisenhour has been included in group exhibitions at venues such as the Logan Galleries, Strohl Art Center, Chautauqua Institute, Chautauqua, NY; Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, Port Angeles, WA; and the United States Botanic Garden, Washington DC, among others. His work was recently reviewed in Sculpture Magazine.
