Stephen Eichhorn is a Chicago collage artist. We discovered his work in the beautiful book Strange Plants a study of plants in contemporary art. Stephen scours old magazines and books for flower photography, cuts them out with a blade and meticulous layers the fronds and blossoms to create new compositions. The images are layered on bright gradients and bold hues to create striking canvases.
When asked what he wants viewers to take away from his work, his answer is short and (somewhat) sweet: “Beauty and some cosmic shit.” Good answer!
