Stacy Isenbarger’s artworks incite viewers through dynamic interplay between media, space, and iconography. Isenbarger’s work simultaneously investigates ideas and materials, transforming the familiar into forms that challenge our assumptions of our environment and cultural barriers we build for ourselves.
Stacy Isenbarger is the President of the national organization FATE (Foundations in Art: Theory in Education) and a founding member of the creative collaborative BASK. Stacy received her Master of Fine Art Degree in Sculpture from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia in 2009 and received her Bachelor of Fine Art Degree in Sculpture at Clemson University in 2005.
