About

Sara Eichner wants to create a space where point of view can not be fixed. Optical games stand in for the struggle to comprehend the complexities of seeing. Using simple drawing tools and paper, she engages a systematic process that branches into new forms as they meet if / else junctures in the work. The series grow iteratively, engaging perception as a subject and a means.

To begin, she creates a grid of converging lines in perspective to establish a basic unit of pictorial space. That bound unit: lines and perspective; becomes the foundation for building complexity. Variables such as repetition, color, incremental rotation, inversion, concentration and dispersion are applied. Properties of the initial unit are subverted and transformed. Play between solidity and transparency, mass and lightness, concentration and diffusion, slows down perception. A build up of marks aggregates into optical mixtures and resolves into patterns created by processes of rotation and layering.

These patterns and binary relationships emerge slowly. The networks of lines converge and disperse creating multiple visual paths through fields of structured accumulation. Her very human hand leaves behind texture that animates the final artifacts of this process.

Sara Eichner is a graduate of Kenyon College (BA) and Syracuse University (MFA). She has had solo exhibitions at PPOW and Sears Peyton Gallery in New York City and participated in group exhibitions throughout the U.S. Her work is in public and private collections including Fidelity Investment Company, MA; US Department of State, Washington D.C.; Alliance Bernstein, NY; and Wellington Management, MA. She been awarded the NYFA Artist Fellowship for painting, Artist in the Marketplace Award from the Bronx Museum, Lower East Side Printshop Key Holder Residency, and a residency at the Millay Colony (Austerlitz, NY). She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
