Eva Eisler enjoys an international reputation as a multi-disciplinary artist and designer. Her work is represented in some of the world’s most prestigious museum collections, such as the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Arts & Design in New York, Smithsonian Institution - Renwick Gallery, Washington, Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Los Angeles County Museum, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich and others.
Les Ateliers Courbet has selected a series of brooches by Eva Eisler that reflect the artist's on-going exploration of architectural forms and lines in the broadest scales. These jewelry pieces are yet different than Eisler's well-known minimalist steel objects. It was inspired by the mythical story of Atlantis and by unidentified remains of architecture from past civilizations. The new series of brooches is made of imitation wood, reminiscent of archaeological finds, geometric sculptures or architectural models.
For Eisler, her work is an outlet for ideas about the order and logic of the universe, a way of shaping - on a small scale - ideas that are too large to grasp. By constructing an architecture that can be held, instead of holding us within it, Eva Eisler may be giving us an opportunity to see the shapes that invisibly shape our lives.
