Eitel creates works that are art historically informed and stylistically sophisticated, yet extremely accessible. Eitel’s technical command of the craft of painting is impressive, as are his visual references to film, photography, and modern painting. The legacy of Gerhard Richter’s photorealist work is discernible in Eitel’s paintings, as is Richard Diebenkorn’s use of the human figure in abstracted spaces. Eitel himself counts Caspar David Friedrich, Edouard Manet, Barnett Newman, Jeff Wall, and Thomas Demand among his influences.
