Stephen Eichhorn

I just came across an artist whose work I’m really loving. Yes, some of it has cats in it. But even the non-cat pieces are pretty darned great. Stephen Eichhorn does mind-blowing collage work, predominantly floral, with original source material coming from old books and magazines, even wallpaper. His most current show is Contemporary Collage, June 14th – July 18th in Chicago, also featuring work by artists Juan Angel Chavez, Lydia Diemer, Clark Ellithorpe, Chad Kouri, Alexis Mackenzie, Leslie Mutchler, and Neva Sills. I’ll take ‘Leaves’ and Orchid’ please.
