Trompe L’oeil Constructions by Ron Isaacs
Using layers of birch plywood, American artist Ron Isaacs creates elaborate sculptural pieces combining three main subjects – vintage garments, plant materials and found objects.
“ I could use real objects to make assemblages, installations, or collages, but that’s too direct. My basic technique of building elaborate relief constructions of Finnish birch plywood and painting them in trompe l’oeil fashion has its own deep satisfactions of process and problem- solving, but it also serves as a means to understanding the objects. ”
