artist info

Ron Isaacs was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and studied art at Berea College in Kentucky before attending Indiana University, where he received his MFA in painting. He has exhibited nationally in museums such as the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian, the Kohler Arts Center, the Denver Art Museum, the National Museum of American Art, the Phoenix Art Museum, the Fuller Craft Museum, the Southern Ohio Museum, and the Columbus Museum of Art. The work of Ron Issacs is included in many public and private collections, including the Racine Art Museum, the Kohler Arts Center, the Huntsville Museum of Art, the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, American Express, Chase Manhattan Bank, AT&T, and the McDonalds Corporation.

Ron Isaacs’ constructions of Finnish birch plywood are meticulously sculpted and brought to life with acrylic paints in the hyper-realistic trompe l’oeil style, resulting in a beautiful harmony between painting and sculpture.  His subjects are combinations of vintage clothing, plant materials and found objects bearing some patina of time, all rendered in wood and paint.  The illusionary aspect of the work is not the primary goal, but a means toward a strong and evocative image.  Isaacs has described his works as “visual poems,” gently illustrative, suggestively metaphoric, and wonderfully mysterious.

“My three recurring subjects are vintage clothing, plant materials, and found objects bearing some patina of time. I combine imagery to explore visual ideas and to suggest metaphors for the relationships of human life and nature, for memory, and the passage of time. I intend the content of the work to be as open-ended and evocative as possible.

My works stand exactly halfway between painting and sculpture. They take the form of elaborate relief constructions of Finnish birch plywood painted in acrylics in a trompe l’oeil (‘fool the eye’) manner. Trompe l’oeil devices provide the authority of direct observation, and I enjoy the fusion and confusion of real and illusory form. I am enamored with the old simple discovery of resemblance, that an object or image made of one material can share the outward appearance and therefore some of the “reality” of another.” -Ron Isaacs
