Jon Eiseman


Rich in symbolism, Jon Eiseman’s exquisite bronzes present beautifully cast images of birds, boats and solitary figures that inhabit surreal landscapes; a fleeting netherworld of dreams and the subconscious. His poetic sculptures symbolically explore the human condition, particularly in a social and spiritual context. They unveil human desires and aspirations that are suppressed by rational consciousness and the routine of everyday living. This shadow world of the human psyche, where reason rarely enters and primitive desires run rampant, may seem all but vanquished in our modern world, yet Eiseman hints that perhaps it has more dominion than we realise. By canvassing this psychic tussle between the rational and irrational, the works become symptomatic of the different modes of interpretation that mark an art audience.
