John ISAACS


 

British artist John Isaacs challenges the everyday paradoxes of contemporary society with his visceral and grotesque imagery. Despite being mainly known for his works, both sculptures of humans and animals, Isaacs works a variety of techniques like neon, bronze, Carrara marble, terracotta, video, and photography. For Isaacs, art ‘is a form of healing and philosophy’; his works are as different as many are the questions he attempts to reply to. In his own words: ‘A lot of the shows I do don’t look like a solo exhibition, they look, instead, like a curated group exhibition. This is a form of anonymity [...] ', a way to remove boundaries in his working practice. Placed together, indeed, his works create dialogues thanks to which unexpected meanings emerge.
