Sara Eichner (1997)

saraeichner copy“I hand-paint my lines. I don’t use a computer for this or a ruler edge or a taped edge. I love the hand-eye process. I like using an element of drawing in painting. It’s very meditative. It’s very absorbing. There’s definitely a time warp as I lose myself in the accumulation of small marks and shapes and their subtle variations.”



Sara Eichner uses colors and patterns in her oil paintings to create optical illusions that explore three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface. She received her B.A. from Kenyon College and her M.F.A. from Syracuse University.  Eichner lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
