Event Details

Schiffer’s approach to the sublime and expansive American West parallels the work of the Tonalist painters of the early 20th century who avoided the majestic, spectacular views of the previous generation in favor of a more reductivist and intimate composition that evokes a poetic mood. The Tonalist style employs a distinctive technique by the use of a color’s middle value as opposed to stronger contrast and high chroma. This results in an understated and compelling overall effect. “I’m structuring the paintings in an ever simpler way. I try to pare down a scene to its essential qualities. I hope to make the images fairly uncomplicated, while still imparting a sense of space and atmosphere and stillness, and paying attention, as always to the quality of light.”
Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday January 6th from 5-7pm.
