Artist list

Iris Eichenberg
Tongue-in-cheek, and hence self-reflective, or flat to the point of meaninglessness, the title of Iris Eichenberg’s new series of work, Birds and Flowers of Michigan, does little to suggest the intensity of the coupling between these fancifully shaped, (pink) flesh-colored flowers, and the delicate, copper-colored birds, whose dead frames appear at once contained in and uncontainable by their equally broken framing cages. These are highly personal works, as intimate and familiar, and at once as exotic and estranging as life and death are in their coupling in one’s—this one’s and that one’s—everyday existence. The breathing, trembling flesh, materialized in the erotically charged shapes and folds of paradoxically colorless flowers are mounted on silver plates, whose whimsical outlines reinscribe, twodimensionally, what the three-dimensional depth of the fleshy flower shapes exuberantly celebrate: the irrepressibility of the palpitating heart beating under the skin, the largest bodily organ whose very tenuousness, being no more than a thin membrane between inside and outside, self and other, simultaneously marks the fragility of life, and the unpredictability of the movements of the pumping heart.
