Artist Creates Works Inspired by Human Nature

Tzvi Izaksonas makes drawings, prints, collages and found-object sculptures that respond to the intersection of organic, crystalline and human-made structures. His work develops a sense of precarious tension and suggests the process of objects falling apart or coming together.

Many things stimulate Izaksonas artistically. “I am inspired by nature, architecture, the human compulsion toward embellishment​ and the little things we pass by every day,” he said.

Originally from Minneapolis and St. Paul, Tzvi received his BA at the University of Minnesota. He is pursuing his MFA in Printmaking at UGA and teaches intaglio and screen-printing there.

The “Master of Fine Arts Degree Candidates Exhibition” is on view at the Georgia Museum of Art from April 12 to May 4, 2014, with a free preview opening reception Friday, April 11, from 6 to 9 p.m. MFA Speaks is scheduled for Thursday, April 17, at 5:30 p.m. and will feature the artists discussing their work.
