Art and Physics in Sculpture
The Duet Series
Martin has added romantic sculptures to The Duet Series several times since the early 1990s. Each bronze sculpture includes a couple in a different relationship. Some of these come from Martin’s own experiences. Others are from his observations. Exquisitely rendered, the depth of these sculptures of dancers moves far beyond simple aesthetics. The dramas of each couple explore the dynamic nature of relationships.
This series was inspired by ideograms, a communications form used by many Asian cultures. The forms are like brush strokes created in space with certain meanings and emotions attached. Unlike most of Eichinger’s work, the figures are a response to the mood of the abstract shapes. The series connects with the artist’s interest in scientific principles.
The Dance Series
Dynamic movements, expressive emotion - inspired by the pleasures of living. A blissful abandon - letting go of our lead as we dance through life, spirited and free.
