Origins of Eileen Braun: An Artist Speaks

Sculptor Eileen Braun conjures the skeletal hulls and germinating pods of an infant organism in her biomorphic forms. They appear before you suspended, reaching out mid-air, or as if propagating from the ground. Some cloaked in a suggestion of heavy metals, other rusted, and some entirely organic in nature. It is with closer inspection that we find these beings might not be as they seem.
