Ron Isaacs' Art of Illusion

It is hard to believe that the sculptures you see below are made of plywood. The fashion + flowery art pieces are the creations of Ron Isaacs, the American artist who has had a 30+ year passion for making these intricate three dimensional wall hangings.

From a far, they look like starched dresses and painted leaves. Take a closer look, you will see the fabric, leaves and branches are carefully constructed pieces made from Finnish birch plywood. Combining Trompe L'oeil painting with intricate wood assembly, his aim is to have you question what you are really seeing. 
I am still fascinated by the old simple idea of resemblance, the very first idea of art after tools and shelter: That an object made of one material can take on the outward appearance and therefore some of the "reality" of another,” explains Isaacs.
His three primary recurring subjects over the years are vintage clothing for the way they continue the life of the past into the present; plant materials in the form of sticks, leaves and flowers; and found objects. He goes on to say "they combine in appropriate or surprising juxtapositions, sometimes purely as a visual poem of sorts and sometimes as an image with real psychological resonance."
I am still in awe at how real these pieces look. So much fabulous talent out there in this wonderful world and I am happy to share some of it with you. I hope you enjoyed. See you next time.
