CCV Hallway Galleries: Isaac Wasuck

CCV’s latest hallway gallery installation is by Isaak Wasuck. The image presented here is titled Matter of Timing (oil on canvas) and is one of the many pieces included in the latest art installation at the Community College of Vermont in Burlington.

Wasuck was born in St. Albans, Vermont. Following high school, he ventured west, as many before, and tried to discover what should be done in life. After working a 9 to 5 job and working on sheep farms in New Zealand, came back to the states and moved to Philadelphia. He attended the university of the arts and received, four years later in 1999, a BFA degree. Since graduation, has moved many more times to various places around the east coast before settling down in Burlington. In this little spot in the world he tries to focus intently on painting, photography, and whatever other art falls in his path, and establishing himself as a contender in the 'art world'.

For Isaac, creating art is a constant failing attempt to escape meaning. His catalog tells a long, drawn out, unintended and detailed story of his life as a fugitive from substance. Artist’s intent is always implied and overcoming the paradox of his 'this means nothing' theme is an impossible trap. His work is a document of trying to overcome the impossible.

This installation is on display through December 5 in the Lower Level atrium of CCV Burlington’s 110 Cherry Street building. For more information on Wasuck and his work, visit
