Project Space: Jeff Eisenberg

In my work I explore a number of concerns: Issues associated with territorializing, the built environment and architecture; fringe communities, niche cultures and marginal systems; utopian strategies and superstitious forebodings. I’m interested in the different ways that these topics can intersect and become expressed through the images, artifacts and detritus we associate with them. I’m also intrigued with the idea of how unrelated groups with radically different ideologies and agendas imprint their values onto the objects and environments that make up their daily lives, examining how their different cosmologies often and oddly converge. Within my own practice I try to create work that embodies a number of these possibilities simultaneously and produce projects that suggest multiple and sometimes conflicting ways to be understood.

Jeff Eisenberg received his MFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2005 and currently lives and works in San Francisco. His most recent exhibitions have been with Helmuth Projects, San Diego, and POVevolving, Los Angeles, as well as regularly showing with Swarm Gallery in Oakland, CA. In addition to his own work, Jeff frequently participates in a number of collaborative projects, most recently as co-curator for “Building Steam”, a year-long series of audio projects and sound installations hosted by Swarm Gallery and partially funded with a Southern Exposure Alternative Grant, 2010-2011. Currently, Jeff is in residency at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art.
