When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

David Eisenhour & David Isenhour

This is funny. I saw a reference to the work of David Isenhour somewhere and in googling him I accidentally added an E in front and came up with the work of David Eisenhour. And guess what? They're both really good. Eisenhour's work is clearly the result of a lifelong obsession with turning over rocks and mucking through ponds. His sculptures do not correspond directly to actual animal forms but display an amazing knowledge of those forms nonetheless. Isenhour's work is attuned more to pop culture, though interestingly, he also plays with organic forms, but to very different ends.
At any rate a happy accident for me.

Here's the work by David Eisenhour (see more at www.eisenhoursculpture.com)
