Jim Isermann is based in Palm Springs and Guerneville, California. Since receiving his MFA from CalArts in 1980, his artwork has chronicled the conflation of postwar industrial design and fine art through popular culture. He divides his practice between labor-intensive studio work for gallery and museum exhibitions, and the digital design and oversight of commissioned projects realized via industrial manufacturing processes. His work has been presented in solo exhibitions at Praz-Delavallade, Los Angeles (2021), Corvi-Mora, London (2015), and Mary Boone Gallery, New York (2011, 2012), among other venues. Recent commissioned projects include works for the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, Yale University Art Museum in New Haven, and an installation for the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. In 2020 his work was the subject of a career survey at the Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center.
