Statement

Jacquelyn Schiffman is a Detroit artist living in New York.  She studied at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris, France and at the Art Students League in New York.   Her academic degrees are a B.A. from the University of Michigan and an M.S. from Southern Connecticut University

New York group exhibitions  include  Exit Art, NY University Washington Square Art Galleries, White Columns, Sensory Evolution Gallery and  the Kentler International Drawing Space.  One person shows include “Painting on Air” at Pepe Giallo in Chelsea and “Detroit Lives” and “Sitting on Air” at the Figureworks Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.   Additionally, she has exhibited in Paris at the Alain Oudin Gallery and in numerous juried shows throughout Connecticut.

The material she uses is unusual.  Often people mistake it for paper.  It is, though, a modern, industrial fabric invented in Germany in the 1960s called spun web.  Spun webs are permanent, archival, light weight and semi transparent.   The moisture repellent qualities of spun web make it able to handle extremes of hot and cold temperatures. It also solves the problem of color coordination in homes and offices because it picks up the ambient light.

Private collectors have purchased this work and hung it in various ways including from the ceiling where light passes through the fabric without harming the painted surface.
