The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts

For the month of September, 10% of profits from my original paintings sold will go to The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts, a nationwide charity that believes all children, no matter what their background, deserve to be inspired by the arts. You can check out the available paintings at kimleutwyler.com.

I’m so inspired Sedition’s upcoming auction of over 100 pieces of contemporary artwork to raise vital funds for The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts. These worked are to be auctioned online during two weeks of September. The top 10-15 lots will go to live auction on the night of 1 October 2014 at my favourite space, the Saatchi Gallery, London.

“Thanks to the generous help of our supporters and partners, every single pound raised through this fabulous event will go directly to benefit disadvantaged children and offer them opportunities they could never otherwise dream of.”
– Jeremy Newton, Chief Executive, The Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts

STEPHEN EICHHORN
VARIOUS FADES

A SOLO EXHIBITION

SEPTEMBER 5 — OCTOBER 12, 2014

Opening Reception: Friday, September 5 from 7-10pm

Johalla Projects is very pleased to present VARIOUS FADES, an exhibition of new works by Chicago-based artist Stephen Eichhorn. In his first solo presentation since 2012, Eichhorn reexamines his practice, producing collages that further complicate the dimensionality of the picture plane. The exhibition will run from SEPTEMBER 5 to OCTOBER 12. An opening reception will be held on Friday, September 5 from 7-10pm.

Stephen Eichhorn’s method to making is at once quiet and intense. By working to establish new constants in his practice, Eichhorn manages to arrive at the unexplored — a middle ground that is overgrown and elegantly exotic. Here, the environment where Eichhorn’s current work resides is formal in its clustered stratification, hearkening to both gestural painting and the constructed photographic image. In this sense, spatial ambiguity becomes a steady, invigorating force that pulses through the exhibition.

More so now than ever, the works in VARIOUS FADES exemplify Eichhorn’s keen sense of cultivation and compositional play – they seductively writhe, bloom, and swell, all while achieving an unnerving constancy. Moreover, the artworks range in size and include many large-scale pieces, which in turn has enabled the artist to erect his signature plant forms with a hyperconscious sense of balance between broader imagery and smaller, more intricately cut paper plant parts. For the exhibition, Eichhorn will install his works in simultaneous response to the gallery’s architecture and to the specificity of his materials, thus endeavoring to create a viewing experience that calls for an extended look at the vivid plantscapes. 

Stephen Eichhorn (b. 1984) lives and works in Chicago, IL. In 2006, Eichhorn received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been included in numerous national solo and group exhibitions, with highlights including CES Contemporary, Los Angeles (2014); Ebersmoore, Chicago (2012, 2011); the Elmhurst Art Museum, Elmhurst, IL (2012); Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN (2012); Bucket Rider Gallery, Chicago (2008); Josée Bienvenu Gallery, NY (2008); and Cairo, Seattle (2008). His work is included in the new Zioxla publication Strange Plants, which was released in July 2014 to critical acclaim.

Valencia, Venezuela-based artist Gustavo Silva Nuñez creates extraordinary paintings that are so hyperrealistic, they seem to come to life and flow right off the canvas. He adds another dimension to the lifelike paintings with playful snapshots of himself interacting with his creations.
