Pastel on paper
A selection of chalk and oil pastel drawings of various subjects on loose paper by contemporary New York artist Bill Schiffer. These four drawings depict a range of subjects, including two Expressionist style renderings of a figure and mouth that remains open. Also included is a geometric shape and study of a metal tea kettle. These works are signed to the margins.
Born in New York, Bill Schiffer rose to prominence as a painter and sculptor in the early 1980’s. Though he still works in many two dimensional and three dimensional art mediums, Schiffer is most well known for his unique handcrafted jewelry, which he started designing after a foray experimenting with wearable art in the fashion scene. Bill Schiffer’s art and jewelry has been shown in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, as well as major museums in Italy, Japan, Germany and the United States. His work has been featured in publications including Vogue, Elle, Bazaar, Women’s Wear Daily, Seventeen and Cosmopolitan.
