A painter and a sculptor, Eisner has worked with scrap and recycled metal for 40 years, creating elegant, abstract forms welded in steel. The artist’s twisted and curved sculptures reflect the surprising malleability she finds with metal.
Eisner’s larger-than-life works and small scale sculptures are ideal for public exhibition, and, indeed, have been exhibited in dozens of public parks, corporate plazas, cultural centers, museums and waterfronts all along the northeast corridor in Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Florida, as well as in Belgium and France.
Eisner’s longevity as an artist – she has had over 20 solo shows and 20 group shows – is a testament to the mass appeal of her work and the natural marriage between her sculptures and the climate of public spaces. Eisner is represented in private, public and corporate collections, including the Guggenheim, and has been written up in The New York Times, New York Magazine, Who’s Who in American Art, Vogue and New York Newsday.
She was born and raised in the Bronx, and received a BFA from Syracuse University. Eisner is a life-long New Yorker, who splits her time between New York City and Weston, Connecticut. She is married to Richard Eisner, and together they stay busy with five children and a dozen grandchildren.
