Published by the Frye Art Museum in conjunction with its exhibition Isaac Layman—Paradise. In a few short years, Isaac Layman (b. 1977) has established himself as an exceptional talent. In Paradise, Layman expands his practice of constructing large-scale, psychologically charged photographic-based visions of the spaces and objects found in his Seattle home. His most recent photographic constructions explore the desire to fabricate escapes, destinations, and monuments and the role discontent plays in driving the need to create imagined perfection. Isaac Layman—Paradise features twenty new works created especially for the exhibition. Layman believes that the paradise for which we often long “is the imagination and its projections.”
