About

Eben Haines was born in Boston, MA in 1990, and he received his BFA with honors from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2013.  His work emphasizes the history and process of object, focusing on human form and the built environment.  Using a covering over and building up of material, he tries to present hand, object, and image simultaneously. He currently lives and works in Jamaica Plain.

"Setting soft and supple nudes and unorthodox portraits against seemingly textured backgrounds, Haines utilizes the tension between abstraction and realism to appease his own inner dichotomies and create art that expresses emotional complexities. But unlike many artists who muddle the polarities of figuration and abstraction into ambiguity, Haines leaves them distinct, engendering a contrast that intensifies the impact of each."
