 A sculptor and painter, Eisner has worked with scrap and recycled metal for 40 years, creating elegant, abstract forms welded in steel. The artist's twisted and curved sculptures reflect the surprising malleability she finds in metal. Eisner's larger-than-life works and small scale sculptures have been exhibited in dozens of public parks, corporate plazas, cultural centers, museums and waterfronts all along the northeast corridor from Massachusetts to Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Florida, as well as in Belgium and France.

Eisner combines found, ancient steel scraps, which are loaded with history and reference a previous life of functionality, but now are reconfigured into an abstract construction which will reflect the artist's vision and become art.

Eisner's longevity as an artist - she has had over 20 solo shows and 20 group shows - is a testament to the mass appeal of her work and the natural marriage between her sculptures and public spaces. Eisner is represented in private, public and corporate collections, including the Guggenheim. Eisner is represented by Susan Ely Fine Art at www.susanelyfineart.com.
