Sacha Craddock on Nicole Eisenman

1 June 2012

Writer and critic Sacha Craddock leads an informal tour of Nicole Eisenman’s 2012 commission ‘Tis but a scratch’ ‘A scratch?! Your arm’s off!’ ‘No, it isn’t’.

At Studio Voltaire, the artist had created a series of large-scale sculptures, mainly of plaster, during a month-long residency.
