Jim Isermann and Susan Yelavitch: A Discussion
Jim Isermann’s art combines retro influences with modern details in furniture reminiscent of the 1950s and painted works that suggest OP Art from the 1960s and ’70s. Isermann received his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts and has been showing actively since 1980 in both solo and group exhibitions. He has received several prestigious awards, among them two National Endowment for the Arts–Visual Arts Fellowships and the California Community Foundation’s J. Paul Getty Fellowship for the Visual Arts. Isermann was commissioned by SITE Santa Fe to create a new façade for the building for the Fourth International Biennial.
