Ink on paper
A selection of ink and marker drawings on paper of figures and geometric forms by contemporary New York artist Bill Schiffer. These six drawings depict a range of subjects, including scrumbled lines, as well as checkered, circular and zig-zagged patterning clustered together. Also included are contour outlines of figures, as well as a stylized illustration of barrels clanging together. To the margins are dated artist signatures.
Born in New York, Bill Schiffer rose to prominence as a painter and sculptor in the early 1980s. 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.
