Nicole Eisenman: Dear Nemesis

1993–2013

Published by Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis/Walther König, Köln
Edited by Samantha Topol. Foreword by Lisa Melandri. Text by Julia Bryan-Wilson, Terry Castle, Litia Perta, Kelly Shindler.

"Untitled" (2012) is reproduced from <I>Nicole Eisenman: Dear Nemesis, 1993-2013</I>.Depicting themes and settings as varied as bar scenes, motherhood and the plight of the artist, New York–based artist Nicole Eisenman (born 1965) fuses contemporary subject matter with art-historical influences ranging from Renaissance chiaroscuro to twentieth-century social realist painting. Her narrative depictions and renderings of women's bodies proclaim an ardently feminist world and imbue figurative art with an audaciously queer sensibility. This publication accompanies Eisenman's definitive midcareer survey at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, which charts the development of the artist's practice from the early 1990s to the present across painting, printmaking, drawing and sculpture—bringing together more than 120 works of art, from early ink-on-paper drawings to recent explorations in printmaking and sculpture.

"Untitled" (2012) is reproduced from Nicole Eisenman: Dear Nemesis, 1993-2013.

Nicole Eisenman: Dear Nemesis

Nicole Eisenman: Dear Nemesis"Hard it is—even on this dignified retrospective occasion," Terry Castle writes in CAM St. Louis' dignified new Nicole Eisenman retrospective catalogue, "to blather on in the usual ponderous art-book fashion about the witty, perverse, and hugely generous art of Nicole Eisenman. Two decades into her swashbuckling career, Eisenman's antic worldview and scabrous comic candor continue to puncture critical pomposity, starting with one's own. Eisenman is a born debunker: an artist who combines exacting—at times stupendous—technical gifts that with a lampooning vision of life so uncensored, intelligent, and impervious to high seriousness she leaves pretentious would-be art-scribes at a loss. To borrow Gertrude Stein's amusing epithet for Ezra Pound, Eisenman can reduce even the most exasperating of Village Explainers to uncharacteristic silence." Untitled (2011-2012) is reproduced from Nicole Eisenman: Dear Nemesis. continue to blog
