Erik Isaac ~ Perfect Day

Exhibition Dates: 22 September 2011–8 October 2011

Artist Reception: Friday, 23 September 2011, 6–9 pm


On September 22nd Erik Isaac will become the Artist In Residence, showing his work, "Perfect Day", that explores the realities of what it takes to keep our complex world of human lives and interactions going. You are invited to join Erik at the Artist Reception on 23 September 2011, 6–9pm, and to the First Friday Reception on 7 October 2011, 6–9pm.

Erik works with concepts that can easily go unnoticed, but are the fundamental part of everyday experience of being human. A field-day first prize ribbon holder for long jump in grade school, Erik illustrates that first place is not just what it appears to be on the surface with his work, "1ST PLACE *". The work explores the childhood experiences of the all too desired first place ribbon, that transitions into the understanding of the commonality of awards and their relative value. Erik examines the underlying infrastructure of our daily existence with the common chore: laundry. He uses the only byproduct, lint, in his second work entitled, "Just Doing my Job Maʼam". Finally, "Utopian Rituals (a self portrait)" is a site-specific installation which takes on a personal note for Erik, an untraditional portrait made of daily checklists, illustrating the desperate desire for a perfect day.
