ISAAC ADEN

 

1979 born in Lincoln, NE

Lives and works in Manhattan, NY

 

 

Isaac Aden’s Post-Medium practice has centered its primary research in the area of New Institutionalism.  Aden makes bodies of works often tangentially related and even visually disparate with no desire to ascribe an aesthetic conclusion to his practice.  In this way his practice becomes absorbent and generative.

 

Aden’s work is about the human condition, the American experience, and painting in the expanded field.  It is my aim to consider the lessons of history from which we arrive at this current moment and focus it into creating art with hopes of retaining relevance generations beyond now.
