Sara Eichner Biography

As a city dweller I have collected visual elements from the rhythm of patterns, grids, textures, and the riot of planes in the urban environment. As a painter I’ve applied systems of perspective and organization to that collection and boiled them down to a specific vocabulary that I now play with. I experiment with grids and perspective on the computer and in paintings, overlaying and reversing them, and applying colors to see what optical surprises I get. The process of making these paintings is decidedly analog; it is slow and meditative, and plays my love of control off an inevitably imprecise and wobbly hand. The results are reductive and minimalist with textured presence that unfolds slowly to reflect the complexity I believe is inherent in perception.
