Depicting themes and settings as varied as bar scenes, motherhood and the plight of the artist, New York-based artist Nicole Eisenman (born 1965) fuses contemporary subject matter with art historical influences ranging from Renaissance chiaroscuro toMoreDepicting themes and settings as varied as bar scenes, motherhood and the plight of the artist, New York-based artist Nicole Eisenman (born 1965) fuses contemporary subject matter with art historical influences ranging from Renaissance chiaroscuro to twentieth-century social realist painting. Her narrative depictions and renderings of womens bodies proclaim an ardently feminist world and imbue figurative art with an audaciously queer sensibility. This publication accompanies Eisenmans definitive midcareer survey at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, which charts the development of the artists practice from the early 1990s to the present across painting, printmaking, drawing and sculpture--bringing together more than 120 works of art, from early ink-on-paper drawings to recent explorations in printmaking and sculpture.
