BIO

Austin Eddy's (American, b. 1986) work thrives on contradiction. Figurative elements fold into nocturnal landscapes, buildings become isolated portraits in claustrophobic spaces, floating clouds turn bulbous finger—simultaneously portrait, still-life and landscape. Similarly, Eddy’s brightly painted sculptures ride a line between bust and building, object and subject. Undulating between these artistic tropes, Eddy’s work references modernist tendencies both formally and conceptually.

Eddy earned a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2009. Exhibiting internationally, his solo shows since 2012 include Launch F-18 Gallery, New York, New York; Roberto Paradise, San Juan, Puerto Rico; Christian Berst, New York, New York; Bendixen Contemporary Art, Copenhagen, Denmark; The Horticultural Society, New York, New York; the University of Kentucky Hospital, Lexington, Kentucky; Important Projects, Oakland, California; Conduit Gallery, Dallas, Texas, and most recently, Taymour Grahne Gallery, New York, New York. He participated in group shows, including The Urban Institute of Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids, Michigan; Museum Of Contemporary Art, Atlanta, Georgia; The New Hampshire Institute of Art, Manchester, New Hampshire; Adams And Ollman, Portland, Oregon; Coburn Projects, London, United Kindgom; Brand New Gallery; Milan, Italy; Steinsland Berliner, Stockholm, Sweden; Charlotte Fogh Gallery, Aarhus, Denmark; as well as a two-person exhibition at Denny Gallery in New York, New York.
