"In a former, galactically distant life, just about twenty years ago, (Martin Eder) was regularly haunted by those whiter than white cuddly creatures from washing powder advertisements. Whilst at the same time the porcelain-faced girlie angels on hairspray posters, peering lustfully from beneath their silky hair, agitated him. Martin Eder explains openly that they seem to be still on his trail today, alongside the soft waxen advertising aesthetics of the 80s, in the here and now of his afterlife. The artist, born in 1968, is both fascinated and repelled by the texture of seduction. His paintings, objects and installations are dedicated to the curiously narcoticising vacuum of lust, which incites an entirely medialised reality.
At the turn of the century, after studying art in Augsburg, Nuremberg, Kassel and Dresden he went to New York with a Philip Morris Scholarship, then to Los Angeles, where he was soon adored by Hollywood'’s movie aristocracy. Increasing numbers of European collectors are now falling for his artwork, attracted by the ghostly world between dream and trauma, sentimental sweetness and pornography."
