My father was an early and steady influence on my art making. As a child, I’d play hooky by commuting with him down to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City where I’d spend the day roaming the halls while he painted. Many times I’d sit on the edge of a diorama watching him work. 2018 is the 103rd anniversary of his birth. I welcome and encourage you to visit and celebrate his life’s work: fredfscherer.com
Cicely Aikman, Artist, Poet, 1923 – 2013
Please visit and enjoy the web site and work of painter Cicely Aikman: cicelyaikman.com
Cicely’s free and lush use of form, line and color has had a great and lasting impact on how I see the world -and how I think as I work. She is in my mind when I take pleasure in a moment of light, when I discern the uniqueness of a shade, and the simplicity of a curve. She was a master in paint before her time. …Deidre Scherer
“Everyday Mermaid” Book Prototype is Complete
California poet and friend Christina Isobel and I have been working on our book collaboration for several years. In responding visually to her poetry, I discovered a vibrant language of symbolic abstraction. Here across my studio wall, like a scroll, are my fabric panels overlaid with Christina’s poems. All 34 full spreads were then scanned, printed, trimmed, folded, and hand-built into a prototype of the book. We are PUBLISHING!
