Natural Elements And Vintage Garments Is Came Together by Artist

Vintage garments and nature collide in the trompe l’oeil works of Ron Isaacs. Isaacs’s oeuvre is poetic and deliberately evasive as the Lexington-based artist renders vintage garments that represent an imagined figure. Whether appearing to be lying flat or slowly drifting to the floor, the slips and blouses evoke a “vivid human presence, as well as their own histories and mysteries,” he says.
