Eiko Borcherding’s pencil and mixed media drawings on found fragile are commandeered by the vintage paper scraps and old book covers he finds at flea markets and antique shops. His drawings bring to mind Rembrandt and Durer, especially the latter, whereby the artistʼs depictions of fauna and flora are the main focus. His work reflects on ideals of mortality, combining the natural world with trivial motifs, whether the subject is a flower bouquet, an antique dress, birds, trees or foxes. Borcherding studied at FH Hannover and at HAW Hamburg and has shown extensively in Germany, such as in Galerie Holthoff-Mokross, Feinkust Kruger, Felix Judd, and Galerie Affenfaust in Hamburg; Richard Haizmann Museum, Niebull; Herr Beinlich Contemporary Fine Art, Bielefeld; Kunstraum Neureut, Karlsruhe; Galerie Borssenanger, Chemnitz; Galerie Luth, Husum; Nolde Stiftung Seebull Dependance, Berlin; Galerie J.H. Bauer, Hannover, among others. Internationally, Borcherding has shown at Jack Fischer Gallery in San Francis- co, CA and currently teaches drawing at the Art College in Kiel, Germany.
