Jim Isermann: Works 1980–2020

Text by Christopher Knight.

Jim Isermann: Works 1980–2020

From functional installations to discrete objects, Jim Isermann has chronicled the conflation of postwar industrial design and fine art through popular culture

A comprehensive monograph spanning the 40-year career of Palm Springs–based artist Jim Isermann (born 1955), this title shows the artist’s first 20 years of extensive, chronological research of postwar art and design filtered through popular culture and consumerism, followed by 20 years of site-specific public projects and a studio practice of labor-intensive painting, sculpture and the occasional product design project.

In 1980, there were no guidebooks to California design or what we now call Midcentury Modern. Isermann constructed his own timeline, object by object, from thrift stores, flea markets and swap meets, making bodies of work that included latch hook rugs paired with painting, stained glass window panels and handsewn fabric wall hangings. By 1999, Isermann had his first computer, and so began the second 20 years of his career, with complex digitally designed patterns that found their form in commercially manufactured modules. Isermann continues to be inspired by the unpredictable, serendipitous moments that breathe life into his work.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

AIGA

Kimberly Varella

I truly appreciate the detail of the varying covers and how the peek-a-boo of the case-wrap constantly hugs/holds the interior of the book. The choice of printing on fabric replicates the quality of Isermann's hi/low patterns—at first they could be mistaken for stationery boxes however the unique palette’s and the cloth itself take the book to a whole new level.

Eye-popping 'Jim Isermann: Works 1980–2020' is NEW from Radius Books

Featured spreads are from Jim Isermann: Works 1980–2020, the new, 272-page, career-spanning monograph from Radius Books. Jam-packed with vivid details, installation shots, a heavily-illustrated chronology and key reproductions of artworks and design objects, this beautifully-produced volume also comes with three different eye-popping covers—so be prepared to request red, yellow or blue from your favorite independent bookseller! "Isermann’s art of the past forty years has been crucial to the emergence of design as a discipline laden with the same potentially powerful critical capacities attributed to traditional painting and sculpture," Christopher Knight writes in the book's Introduction. "Despite misplaced historical qualms about design’s capacities, and along with artists as diverse as Scott Burton, Jorge Pardo, Pae White, and Andrea Zittel, he has been instrumental in changing the terms of the conversation." continue to blog
