Nicole Eisenman: A Decade of Printing

In 2012, Nicole Eisenman embarked on an intensive venture into printmaking. A prolific and highly influential painter and sculptor, the artist recasts art historical motifs in contemporary settings, often exploring experiences of community and isolation in today’s world. Over the past ten years, Eisenman has immersed themselves in the expansive possibilities offered by the graphic arts alongside their work in other media.

This exhibition presents more than 50 works made by Eisenman at three New York–based printshops: 10 Grand Press, Harlan & Weaver, and Jungle Press. In close collaboration with master printers there, the artist has experimented with a range of printmaking techniques—including monotype, etching, woodcut, and lithography—exploring the unique traits of each. Drawn from the collections of Eisenman and their collaborators, the works on view reveal how printmaking has emerged as a primary vehicle for this important contemporary artist to explore foundational themes and ideas central to their work, translating them inventively across media.
