Jim Isermann a practicing artist, based in Palm Springs and Guerneville, California. Since receiving his MFA from the California Institute of Arts in 1980, Isermann’s artistic output has chronicled the conflation of post-war industrial design and fine art through popular culture. He divides his practice between labor-intensive studio work for gallery and museum exhibitions, and the digital design and oversight of commissioned projects that utilize industrial manufacturing processes.
Recent solo exhibitions include: Praz-Delavallade, in Paris in 2010, Corvi-Mora, in London in 2011 and Mary Boone Gallery in New York in 2011 & 2012. His recent commissioned projects include works for the UCLA Hammer Museum, Yale University Art Museum, and an installation for the new Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.
Isermann’s residency develops a geometric concrete building block and a collection of blankets.
