Products by Eden Bender

Eden Bender is an established Toronto based sculptor and painter. Her monochromatic sculptures at first glance appear quiet and placid, but upon closer inspection, visions of soft focus memories shift shape into a surreal and unsettling territory. At first blush, the quiet nesting of images seems relaxed and tranquil until her narrative titles lead you down a rocky path. Figures transform meaning, solidify, and what was once a familiar dream, can suddenly have a dark nightmarish quality.  Eden’s involvement in her community has always been a great source of inspiration.  Her work focuses on the adversity of the human condition.

Eden graduated from York University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She keeps pushing her own artistic boundaries and development by continuing studies in specialized courses. Eden has received numerous awards including the Odette Sculpture Award, the Ontario Arts Council Award, and People’s Choice Award – The Brain Project.  She is in multiple publications including Beautiful Home by Studio Pyramid, Objekt International; 500 Figures in Clay,  Lark Books;  Beneath the Surface, Potpourri – the Gardiner Museum magazine; and The Black and White of Eden Bender,  Fusion Magazine.  She is in public and private collections. Eden’s work was internationally exhibited at the Stricoff Gallery, New York;  Art Basel, Switzerland; Warsaw Poland International Ceramic Exhibition, Poland;  Master Class St. Petersburg, Russia; and The International Art Fair, Toronto.
