Working in his 6,000 square foot studio, with its 16 foot high ceilings Eichinger creates dramatic bronzes that range in scale from intimate to monumental. For more than twenty years, this dynamic, visionary artist has produced limited-edition sculptures
that engage the minds and hearts of collectors and resonate within our larger social and political culture. Grouped into themed series, the sculptures chronicle the eternal human pursuit of meaning, happiness, and growth.
Martin’s sculptures have been described as “chronicling the eternal human pursuit of meaning, happiness, and growth.” This is a vast and monumental range to cover but Martin states his appreciation for complexity, drama, and emotion all contribute to his work. Martin’s sculptures can’t be entirely absorbed at first glance. There’s so much detail and significance happening in a piece, and behind
the scenes aspects such as Martin’s history and values deliver meaning as well. Martin’s sculptures do have an alluring effect on them. “Like a piece of architecture, you want to be able to entice someone to go around and see everything.” He understands that one portion of a sculpture can be more significant than another, but you can’t have anyone be bored.
In addition to his University degrees, Eichinger undertook independent studies in classical sculpture throughout Europe. Over the past two decades Eichinger has taught numerous workshops and mentored more than twenty apprentices, many of whom have gone on to rewarding artistic careers of their own. A professional
member and Fellow of the National Sculpture Society, he is also a founding member of the Pacific Northwest Sculpture Association. His work is represented by more than two-dozen fine art galleries throughout the United States and is housed in over 1,000 private and corporate collections around the world.
