Artist's Description

this is the vision I received when given the compliment to me that is on my profile now :)…..

thankyou "Helen ":

a dirty, very dirty jar. by the window. in which I kept a gardenia, which dried up inside it. and I couldn’t wash it. away. the plant is the spider plant which abound and has taken over like a weed .. i call this plant “bad mama”..and I actually had to think of the real name of this plant while uploading to RB.. . because it throws its baby plants . making more beauty

  1. Isa’s work portrays the “real” of life in much of America. The women in America are not the painted dolls that everyone sees on tee vee. We are moms who wipe butts and noses, take out the garbage, and work 2 jobs, but still can’t earn enough. Isa’s Trailer Park America series is a slice of reality with a unique artistic flair. Dorothea Lange is one of my heroes, and she brought the gritty, painful, hungry reality of Depression Era poverty to the eyes of the world. Isa brings us the reality of people who manage to smile despite struggles.

There is something that is so true, and yet inarticulable, about Isa’s work. Like a recycled glass jelly jar filled with water, a little vine or flower in the water, sitting on a window sill surrounded by all manner of knick knacks and stuff – something so delightful that would never be seen in Beverly Hills.

You put your camera around your neck along with putting on your shoes, and there it is, an appendage of the body that shares your life with you. The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” – Dorothea Lange_
