Artist’s Project: Stephen Eichhorn


For his project "Cat Sampler," Chicago-based artist Stephen Eichhorn has created delicate hand-cut paper collages from found photos of flora and equally exotic fauna, resulting in elegant, amusing, and uncanny imagery.

Born in 1984, Stephen Eichhorn lives and works in Chicago, IL. In 2006, he received his B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Eichhorn’s work has been included in solo and group exhibitions at venues throughout the U.S., including the Dallas Art Fair, Dallas, TX (2019), the Chicago Athletic Association, Chicago (2016), Johalla Projects, Chicago (2012), Ebersmoore, Chicago (2011, 2012); the Elmhurst Art Museum, Elmhurst, IL (2012); Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN (2012); and Bucket Rider Gallery, Chicago (2008).
