American, b. 1987
Isaac Brest received his professional education in film but is best known for works in photography and installation. He is involved in The Still House Group artist organization, which he founded with Alex Perweiler in 2007. Their mission is to foster “creative sustainability” for future generations of artists seeking non-traditional career paths. Brest’s own conceptually based works present wry commentary on contemporary art practice by incorporating elements of architecture and film; he also works frequently with industrial materials including sheetrock, sanding tools, Plexiglas, and plywood.
