Mr. Eichinger states that “By sharing story and emotion through the human form, I feel connected in a deeper way. That connection is with both people who view it and perhaps, more importantly, the sculpture I am working on." Some viewers may see this work as mysteriously haunting, capturing a fleeting moment in the universe.
"I am interested in having my sculptures say more about us as a people, about our spirits or our aspirations. Although most people see me as a figurative sculptor, I prefer being thought of as a narrative artist. It's this quality of my work that connects my heart and soul to others who are looking at it, or preferably, feeling it,” Martin shares, as he further expresses, “I feel that my artwork is complete once I sense that it has entered someone's life in a meaningful way. Art that becomes part of our shared culture is more meaningful than the aesthetic experience alone."
For over three decades Eichinger has produced award winning limited-edition narrative, romantic sculptures that grace many private and corporate collections around the world. In addition to university degrees, Eichinger undertook independent studies in classical sculpture throughout Europe. He is an elected Fellow of the National Sculpture Society.
Martin’s masterful sculptures are featured in galleries across the United States. He is currently on tour with his latest series called Meditation.
