Land and Sea Dept., in conjunction with Soccer Club Club, is pleased to announce Warm Embrace,
an exhibition of new collage, sculpture and textile works by Chicago
artist STEPHEN EICHHORN. In addition to the new work, there will be a
special live acoustic performance by AL CISNEROS and ROBERT AA LOWE (of Om), as well as a rare deejay set from SHANE GABIER and CHRIS PETERS, the duo behind fashion label Creatures Of The Wind.
This event, on Friday November 16th, will be the second of two exhibitions for EICHHORN in November, the first of which - Death is Not Your Friend - takes place at his gallery proper, Ebersmoore,
on Friday, November 2nd. Both shows feature works that continue to be
informed by EICHHORN’s fascination with the cult of plants, and the
collected collage and sculpture offerings give a nod to a “loose
narrative” new to his creative process, referencing sacred rituals and
spaces with “figurative, abstract and plant-based imagery.”
CISNEROS and LOWE are known for both their previous and individual
endeavors, as well as their shared efforts with regarded ensemble Om. Here, the two will collaborate acoustically as a duo, offering up a set of contemplative experimentalism.
Creatures of the Wind designers GABIER and PETERS have
won numerous accolades over the last couple of years, and their runway
shows have attained ‘must see’ status when seasonal New York collections

EBERSMOORE is pleased to announce its upcoming solo exhibition with gallery artist Stephen Eichhorn. This is the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery.
With Death Is Not Your Friend, Eichhorn will show both collage and new sculptural endeavors. The works stem from his ongoing fascination in the cult of plants. En masse the collage and sculpture give a nod to a loose narrative new to Eichhorn’s creative process. He touches on sacred rituals and spaces with figurative, abstract and plant based imagery. This exhibition is first installment of a two-part project Eichhorn is undertaking in the month of November. Part two, Warm Embrace, will take place at the Soccer Club Club on November 16th (details below) accompanied by a special performance by Al Cisneros and Robert AA Lowe of OM and a rare deejay set by Creatures of the Wind.

Black Hunger Gallery presents One Picture Show: Stephen Eichhorn, the first of an exhibition series to focus on a singular work of art by an emerging artist we find to be compelling and influential. Eichhorn, a Chicago-based artist, creates beautiful hand-cut paper collages that operate in a new reality by abstracting the familiar in order to construct unearthly phenomena derived from his own visual language. His domestic structures slip into the strange manifested by the reassembling of elements into conceptual forms that are natural, yet bizarre. Saturday, May 5, 2012 marks the exhibition opening with a reception from 7 to 10 p.m.

Chicago artist Stephen Eichhorn creates delicate hand-cut paper collages from photos of foliage—palm fronds, grasses, leaves and flowers. Quiet and poetic, Eichhorn’s work radiates a complex harmony between the natural and handmade world. Eichhorn’s new work has on black backgrounds creates a floating image in cosmic space. Though complexly layered and intuitively organized, the work exudes a simple elegance. Eichhorn’s floral arrangements suggest an underlying structural rhythm to growth, adaptation and accumulation.
The painstaking and delicate method Eichhorn uses to make his pieces mirrors the natural process of fertilization, evolution and exuberant proliferation. Eichhorn’s new work begins to loosen his collage style, reducing or abandoning framework and creating draping compositions. The work embodies the delicate architecture of orchid petals and his larger free-form installations take on the appearance of blankets quilted from Japanese maple leaves.
Please join us for a panel discussion with Stephen Eichhorn, Cody Hudson and Luke Batten, moderated by curator Aaron Ott on March 2, 2012 at 6:30 pm. This program is free and open to the public.
