Our spring artist featured at Baana is Emily Eisenhart. Join us for the opening reception of her show, Topographies, on Friday, April 27.
An anthropologist and explorer, artist Emily Eisenhart is constantly seeking creative inspiration. Having never formally studied art, she attributes her evolving style to her upbringing with artist and archaeology parents and her innate curiosity. The patterns in her work are reminiscent of the textures, shapes, environments, people, and the natural world that she has experienced during her travels domestically and abroad. Emily has several distinct styles, yet the majority of her paintings and illustrations are abstract in nature. In this show, Topographies, she will present works of art reminiscent of her years in the Bay Area, adventures in the Southwest, and memories from her hometown of Seattle and Austin where she now resides. Among her best known pieces are her detailed, maze-like patterns in black and white. While constantly experimenting, her primary media consists of sumi ink and acrylics. She has painted on all scales, from tiny portraits to large-scale murals. Her work is rarely planned and always instinctive.
