about the artist
Jeri Eisenberg is a photo-based artist working with non-traditional and alternative techniques. living in upstate New York. She represses traditional photography's emphasis on the representational qualities of the medium, and emphasizes instead the medium's expressive nature. She employs a strong sense of materiality and seductive surfaces in her work to evoke visceral connections. Her long-term series, ‘A Sojourn in Seasons,’ are large-scale abstracted images of the treed landscape, printed on long panels of Japanese Kozo paper and infused with molten encaustic medium.
Jeri has been the recipient of grants through the New York Council on the Arts as well as the New York Foundation for the Arts, and artist residency awards, including the Atlantic Center for the Arts, Vermont Studio Center, and the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development. Her work is in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Center for Photography at Woodstock, Museu do Art Moderna do Rio de Janeiro, and the Albany Institute of History and Art, in addition to private and corporate collections including Tiffany’s, HSBC, Weill-Cornell Medical Center and Banana Republic. Her work is also included in “Encaustic: A Guide to Creating Fine Art with Wax”.
