|Isaac Kahn was
born in Lithuania in 1950. He began his
studies in 1966 at The Art Institute "Dr. Israel Goldstein" in
Jerusalem, where he received his degree in sculpture and
During this time he took advantage of painting courses at the Bezalel
In 1974, Isaac moved to Montevideo, Uruguay, to attend the University of Plastic Arts, where he specialized in sculpture. There he worked with a group of sculptors and made both the seal of arms of Uruguay and a Diorama, now on display at the Cours of Justice in Montevidieo.
In Isaac's paintings, he
attempts to make it appear three-dimensional by presenting his figures
to us in multiple viewpoints, seen from different angles and diverse
perspectives. His approach to the human figure is portrayed
redefinition of pictorial space, the reduction of the human anatomy to
geometric form and the abandonment of the body's normal
What he seems to do is organize his perceptions and recompose them into
a figurative sequence in which he has concentrated the highest degree
of visual unity and a moment of multiple viewpoints.
In 1991 Isaac moved to Italy and participated in several one man shows and group exhibitions. He remained in Italy through 1995.
Saper Galleries has been carrying the cast bronze sculpture of Isaac Kahn, the first of its kind in Israel, since 1999.
