Our 6,000 square foot studio is the heart of our creative output. For nearly 30 years, Marty Eighinger and his team of skilled sculptors have produced limited edition bronze sculptures and numerous commissions. The studio is the source for projects that engage the minds and hearts of collectors and resonate within our larger social and political culture.
Martin Eichinger: Storytelling with Sculpture
Although most people see me as a figurative sculptor, I see myself as a conceptual artist. It's the concept that connects my heart and soul to those who view, or preferably, feel my work. Art that becomes part of a shared culture is much larger than the aesthetic experience alone. I want my sculptures to say more about us as a people, about our spirits or our aspirations.
Throughout my career, I have incorporated kinetics to transform science theory into interactive experiences. By incorporating space, time and movement, I expand sculpture to structures where motion and interaction are driven by water, wind, power and imagination.
The goal is to involve viewers in both the space and the idea to evoke reaction, inspiration, reflection and conversation.
By sharing story and emotion through the form I feel connected in a deeper way, both with the people who view it and, perhaps most importantly, to the work itself. I feel that my artwork is complete once I sense that it has entered someone's life in a meaningful way.
In 2010, Marty was elected Fellow of the National Sculpture Society. He has been a member of the Society since 2004. His work is represented by more fine art galleries throughout the United States and is included in over 1,000 private and corporate collections around the world.
McGettigan studied illustration at Pratt Institute and sculpture New York Academy of Art. His astute observation skills and technical expertise give his work a unique presence that demands reaction. He was a contributor on several life-size figures in the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC.
