Russian (1950 - )
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 painting. During this time he took advantage of painting courses at the Bezalel Art School.
From 1991 through 1995 he lived in Italy and participated in several one-man shows and group exhibitions. In Kahn's paintings, he attempts to make it appear three-dimensional by presenting his figures to us in multiple viewpoints, seen from different angles and divers perspectives.
His approach to the human figure is portrayed though the redefinition of pectoral space, the reduction of the human anatomy to geometric form and the abandonment of the body's normal proportions. 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.
Isaac Kahn has exhibited in one-man and group exhibitions shows in Uruguay, Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, London, Toronto, Paris and throughout the United States.
