Samuel Eisen-Meyers is a painter and mixed media artist raised in Portland and based in Bellingham, WA. He investigates through his work how religion and spirituality transcend and influence both the arts and the creative process. The Seder, a re-envisioning of the Passover meal, employs various 2-D and 3-D mediums that bring the canvas into real space and binds memory with the current location and state of mind of the viewer. Eisen-Meyers recreates the seder by both pulling upon his own memories and drawing upon the larger history of Passover to open up a dialogue for audiences and fellow artists. Exhibit runs through May 4, 2014.
