Hayley Eichenbaum is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles, California. Eichenbaum studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, receiving a BFA in Integrated Studio Arts.
Eichenbaum's practice careens through digital photography, illustration, sculpture, time-based media, and live performance.
Earlier work analyzes the expectations of womanhood: The Female stands for all things powerful and powerless. Eichenbaum's interests linger within this paradox. Such projects led to a current investigation of the façade as the ultimate method of capturing attention.
Over the last four years Eichenbaum has travelled across the country photographing exterior architecture. The historic remnants of Americana reveal that romanticization is crucial to societal survival.
The work exists where the authentic and the surreal collide.
