JAMES EISENTRAGER



Born 1929 in Alvord, Iowa; died 2002
Following the completion of his education at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota (B.A., 1951) and the University of Iowa (M.F.A., 1961), James Eisentrager joined the art department of the University of Nebraska Lincoln. "My work is about structure, composition, proportion, balance, and equilibrium," he explained during a segment of Arts of Nebraska on NET State Wide in March 1998, when he demonstrated his use of a ruler and a home-made compass to draw in charcoal geometric compositions then colored with water soluble paint to create a "colorful multi-dimensional effect." Thomas Majeski and student James Hejl printed the edition resulting from his residency from May 21 through June 11, 1981.
