Seven Things Your Boss Needs To Know About Nicole Eisenman

As the winner of this year's Suzanne Coady Booth / FLAG Art Foundation Prize for her solo exhibition “Singing for Strings”, professional artist Nicole Eisenman offers a solo show at The Contemporary Austin, Downtown, s downtown location. This exhibition includes her first solo exhibition in the United States. She will also be participating in the upcoming Houston Galleries Festival. “Singing for Strings” is a solo exhibition of the paintings of Nicole Eisenman, age 34.

Nicole Eisenman is a contemporary artist based in Houston, Texas. She has worked with oil on canvas and wax paper. Her work has featured in the National Association of Artists, Houston MFA Programs, Austin Film Festival, Southwestern Association of Art Galleries, Grand Prairie Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, University of Texas, and others. Her artwork has appeared in several solo shows, as well as group exhibitions.

Nicole Eisenman's favorite medium is acrylic paint. She likes working with layers of color on the canvas, and the light effects it gives. The subject matter for her paintings often relate to nature, or the human body. For example, a painting she did entitled Cloud, casts a suspicious eye on a seemingly perfectly blue sky: clouds sometimes do appear in blue skies, but sometimes there are puffy white clouds.

This solo exhibition was done with a large format, full-color Nehi beer bottle. It seems like a pretty good painting. The textured background gives the illusion of depth, and gives a nice background to the images of a man and a woman, which are intricately connected. The woman's face appears puffy below the canvas, which also adds an abstract quality to the work. But overall, I really liked this painting, because Nicole Eisenman does an excellent job of applying the abstract style.

Another example of a piece of art by Nicole Eisenman that I really enjoyed was entitled Dreamcatcher. From the title, you can reasonably expect that this painting would contain some type of dream symbolism. It consists mainly of a single, large insect, staring intently at a small child lying on the ground. The insect's mouth opens wide as it stares down at the little child, whose own wingspan seems almost tiny against the large insect's dimensions. This painting evokes both dread and hope at the same time, almost as if the child is experiencing what scientists call the nightmare stage of a human pregnancy.

I'm not going to try to give away the ending of this painting, or try to explain the theme behind it, except to say that I really love the imagery that it portrays. After all, that's why it's called Dreamcatcher. The abstract nature of this painting really makes you question your own perceptions. It may seem like the imagery is suggesting that there is something more sinister beneath the surface of reality, but it also makes you question what exactly our own reality is. That's what I love about paintings like these by Nicole Eisenman.

If you don't like abstract paintings, then I suggest you check out some of her older works, like Time Flux. In fact, I recommend this particular painting to anyone who isn't into too much abstract, or if they feel like it takes away from their naturalistic view of art. In this case, I feel like she tries to bring forth a bit of feelings in the viewer, and I personally don't think it's a great work, but I can't say that for every painting by Nicole Eisenman.

In the end, I'd have to say that overall, my favorite painting from her career is probably No Place Like Home. It's very reminiscent of landscapes, and it has that same sense of awe while also instilling a sense of longing. It's a great piece, and if you haven't checked out the original version, then I highly recommend it. Of course, the comparisons between the two don't stop there, as the landscapes in both paintings look remarkably similar. However, No Place Like Home is a fantastic piece on its own, so I wouldn't feel like it takes away from the rest of her work.
