Post Modern Series

Continuing in his dynamic figurative style, Eichinger has created a new look with his Post Modern Series. The patina differs from previous works with a silver nitrate over polished bronze to create a monochromatic look.

The Goddess Series

These narrative sculptures present a mood and a mythos of ideas and ethics. Each stands powerfully as an individual. Together they symbolize the rising strength of the feminine. Each is potent with meaning that leaps far beyond the ancient Greek elements from which they were inspired.

The Meditation Series

For over 30 years, Eichinger has practiced a four-breath meditation, an important creative centering tool. These mantras became the focus of this sculptural series with each piece representing one breath.

The Dream Series

A dream is a cherished aspiration, ambition or ideal. It is also a very personal state of mind that can be trance-like, transcendent, representative of joy or hope, or even disillusioning. This series depicts figures in various states of being, daydreaming, sleeping, yearning, in ecstasy, agony or exaltation with each dream hidden within the subject’s own imagination.

Exotic Women Series
To communicate what the artist describes as “modern myth”, Eichinger pairs powerful women and exotic animals in this provocative series. The relationships depicted delve into the spiritual realm and symbolism of feminine nature such as wisdom, magic, truth, denial, fear and renewal.

Mythic Man Series
These mythological characters depict strong figures wrestling with and confronting invisible forces. Sampson is Bringing Down the House, Sisyphus is All Downhill from Here, and Atlas is The Weight of the World.
 
Whimsical Narrative Sculptures
Many of Martin's images focus on different ways to consider nature and how we interact with it. Unlike some of his other themes, this group is a bit more whimsical. 
 
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.

Ideoform Series  

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.

Circus Series

The Circus Sculpture Series is full of entertaining and talented characters inspired by performance artists. Eichinger's interest in these characters began years ago. They are both playful and thoughtful at the same time. Each sculpture in this edition has a colorful patina appropriate to each circus character.

Man & Technology Series

Eichinger’s first major sculpture series remains one of his most clearly chronological narratives. 

It illustrates his belief that the viewer plays an integral role in the interpretation of a sculpture’s narrative. The series in remarkably contemporary, though conceived and created decades ago.
