Isaac Atkins graduated from Maine College of Art with a BFA in Painting. He has two original pieces permanently hanging in the Preble Street Lighthouse Shelter and currently resides in Portland, Maine.
Atkins is a multidisciplinary visual artist whose work is primarily in the mediums of painting, costume design, digital art, and textiles. Currently, he is working with unfinished dolls and damaged silkscreens that belonged to his deceased mother and artist, Kim Degen.
An excerpt from Isaac’s exhibition statement:
“… Wait For Me Inside The Infinite presents a selection of figurative artwork by Isaac Atkins and his deceased mother and fellow artist, Kim Degen. Together, they explore personal narratives through symbolic imagery and fabricated characters. These fictional creatures meld animal and human traits, mirroring subjects from old-fashioned children’s books. These anthropomorphic beings weave themselves into every piece and exist in many forms, including doll figurines, painting subjects, and muses for bazaar fashion pieces. “
