“THE POST-MODERN SERIES, FINDING BALANCE AND STRENGTH DURING TIMES OF CHALLENGE” BY “The Post-Modern Series, Finding Balance and Strength During Times of Challenge” by Martin Eichinger at the Mary Martin Gallery, 103 Broad Street. Eichinger will be unveiling his newest bronze sculpture series, “Post Modern”, during this the featured show for the month of October. Compared to the great renaissance sculpture Donatello, Martin Eichingerhas been internationally recognized for his romantic classical bronze sculptures. For more than twenty years, this dynamic, visionary artist has produced limited-edition sculptures that engage the minds and hearts of art lovers and collectors.Grouped into themed series—Dream, Circus, Exotic Women, Goddess, Duet, Passage, Dance, Mythic Man, Ideoforms, and Meditation—Eichinger sculptures chronicle the eternal human pursuit of meaning, happiness, and growth.The “Post-Modern” series invites a conversation for the viewer to contemplate. Each figure is delicately balanced on a post that represents a new way of approaching an idea.According to Eichinger: “To summarize the significance of the Post-Modern series: The tides are shifting for humanity and we are in the process of discovering a new perspective and perhaps a new dance.”“Open, balancing freely in flight, grounding and stable on one hand while the other hand is unburdened. His actions showing that anything is possible” is how Eichinger describes “On the Other Hand”, (35 h x 15 w x 11 d, Edition 75).Eichinger sculptures are also known for their unique patina. Eichinger designed a new silver style patina specifically for the “Post Modern” series by to express and reflect the cool toned contemporary nature of the sculptures and to create an “edgy” effect, symbolizing the concept of Post-modern. Martin Eichinger’s narrative, romantic sculptures grace numerous private and corporate collections around the world. Working in his 6,000-square-foot studio, with its 16-foot-high-ceilings, Eichinger creates dramatic bronzes that range in scale from intimate to monumental. Important large-scale, public, and commissioned works include Windlord, a 16-foot cast-bronze sculpture commissioned by the City of Lansing, Michigan; a high-relief plaque for the Christopher Columbus Quincentennial Celebration; a plaque and bust commemorating President Ronald Reagan; and Ski Trooper, a sculpture commissioned in honor of the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Army’s Tenth Mountain Division. Eichinger has won numerous awards and honors, including First Place in the International ARC Salon, the C. Percival Dietsch Prize for Best Sculpture in the Round, Kellogg Internship, and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. In 1993, at the invitation of His Serene Highness, Prince Rainier III of Monaco, he exhibited his Circus series at the Festival International du Cirque de Monte-Carlo.
