About Isaac McCaslin
Emerging Artist Isaac McCaslin was born in 1989 and raised in Madisonville, a Louisiana town north from New Orleans surrounded by wetlands, palmetto forests and rivers. Isaac received his Bachelors Degree of Fine Arts in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design in May 2013. He has already received the London International Creative Competition’s Talent of the year award in 2011. In 2013 his works were acquired into the Leslie Lohman Museum's permanent collection. McCaslin has won the Bronze award at the Telfair Museum's 19th Annual Telfair Art Fair in 2013 and the Warden Family Foundations Best in Painting Award at the 59th Annual Boardwalk Art Festival, organized by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. McCaslin's current series of work examines the human condition by placing timeless, historical, and contemporary visual imagery within ecosystems to create a threshold of tensions between consumerism, nature, simulation, and artificial replacement. McCaslin sees the works as an evolution of the American Landscape Painting Tradition in deference to the paradigm shift from industrialism to increasing mass production yielding consumerism, materialism, individualism, wastefulness and planet-wide ecological degradation. McCaslin currently works out of his studio in Savannah, Ga.
