Bio:

Matthew Paul Isaacson was born in Northern Michigan and grew up working on a large-scale industrial fruit-manufacturing farm, a background that continues to inform and inspire his work. His current sculptural work focuses on complex installations of free-stacked ceramic and glass tiles in combination with wet clay, which often reference architectural cityscapes. Matthew received his BFA in Painting alongside a Minor in Music from Western Michigan University in 2004. He then received his MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2007 and was awarded the Graduate Thesis Dissertation Scholarship.

Matthew now lives and works in Saint Louis as an Associate Professor and the Ceramics Coordinator at Saint Louis Community College at Forest Park. He has exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally, including a solo exhibition at the Luminary Center for the Arts, a group show at SPACE Gallery in Pittsburgh, and recently participated in the Xin Jiang International Sculpture Exhibition in China. Past residencies include The Luminary Center of Arts, Ox-Bow, Pilchuck Glass School and Sugar Maples Center for Creative Arts.
