BOMB Magazine - - CON­TENTS -

For 20 years, Ni­cole Eisen­man has de­vel­oped a cre­ative vi­sion that com­bines high and low cul­ture with vir­tu­osic skill. Fus­ing cen­turies-old art-mak­ing con­ven­tions and a mul­ti­tude of art his­toric in­flu­ences with con­tem­po­rary sub­ject mat­ter, she has cre­ated de­pic­tions of com­mu­nity, iden­tity, and sex­u­al­ity. Her in­ci­sive so­ciopo­lit­i­cal cri­tique op­er­ates through the quo­tid­ian and the ab­surd in ways that are both for­mally play­ful and visu­ally breath­tak­ing.
