Louis Eisner’s paintings vary in imagery and subject—and sometimes lack a subject entirely. In one of his best-known series, “Void Paintings” (2011), Eisner painted large-scale ambient backgrounds with their sitters missing—creating portraits of, essentially, nothing. Eisner’s other works are more graphic and feature recognizable images, like popular cartoon characters or vividly colored children’s slides. Leviathan (2013), one of Eisner’s rare sculptural works, features cut outs from MAD Magazine strung from a mobile, ultimately meant to parallel Thomas Hobbes’s theory of social organization. Eisner is also an active member of the artist-led organization, The Still House Group.
