Brad Isaacs: Beneath the Pond
July 30 – Sept 26, 2020
Beneath the Pond continues an ongoing practice examining simulations of nature and expressions of masculinity. The exhibition includes new photographs, collages, drawings and paintings based on fishing lures and their colour patterns. This body of work considers lures as readymade sculptural objects, their relevance to cultural and family histories, as well as human-fish relationships, touching on current discussions around water, resource extraction and conservation.
BRAD ISAACS is an artist and independent curator currently based in Toronto, Ontario. He holds an MFA from the University of Western Ontario and has exhibited at galleries such as the McMaster Museum of Art, the Ottawa Art Gallery, and Hamilton Artists Inc. His work in photography, video and installation investigates the complex relationships between people and nature.
