Nicole Eisenman: Prints

Nicole Eisenman

The imagery of Nicole Eisenman’s prints is poignantly evocative channeling a range of recognizable human experiences including love, sex, family and motherhood, alienation, despair, comic relief, drinking, and socializing. From 2011 to 2012, she pursued printmaking, creating works in monotype, lithography, etching, and woodcut. While working at Harlan and Weaver, Eisenman created twelve matrices, from which eleven of them were approved for editioned publications. Works like Watermark, 2012 and Beer Garden, 2012 focus our attention on a foregrounded hand that guides us into the larger picture, shifting the perspective to that of a first-person protagonist. Their precise and repetitive scratching enhance the imagery through increased detail, while literally underscoring the presence of the artist’s own hand as both creator of the work and actor in the scene.

...The beer garden seems to be the equivalent, for certain residents in twenty-first-century Brooklyn, of the grand public promenades and social spaces of the nineteenth century. It's where we go to socialize, to commiserate about how the world is a fucked-up place and about our culture's obsession with happiness. [These] paintings hopefully present something of a ballast to that obsession. It is healthy to look at sadness in the world, and in yourself, and to dwell in it for a little while.
