Needles, Pins, and Nails, 1956

Image for Needles, Pins, and Nails, 1956

Eren began experimenting with collage in 1956, using metal objects pasted onto clay on burlap, as in Needles, Pins and Nails—or, in other works, oil paint applied over cardboard and mixed media, from seashells and pebbles to fragments of lobsters.
