About

John Schieffer's "Mere Words IV' is a stunning paining illustrating some of the most beautiful words known to man. John Schieffer graduated in 1995 from the Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. The salutatorian entered the world of illustration at Mercer Mayer Productions as a children's book illustrator. It was a job where he was presented with the opportunity to use his artistic abilities, although it was not an outlet for a serious painting career. John moved on to work in the field of graphics, where he became a production manager. John has worked full time as a painting restorer for Yost Conservation for 7 years. Working primarily on 19th century American Art, he has been recreating what is missing due to damage from tears, punctures, flaking and aging. He used his precise painting and sculpting skills to return damaged fine art to pristine condition. All through these differing art-related jobs John has always been painting. Schieffer paints in many different sizes using oil paints. His experiences as a restorer have honed a variety of techniques in realism, impressionism, surrealism, abstraction and portraiture. His own works explore texture, space and color. John's current works are contemporary still lifes and photorealism. The still lifes keep focus on the object while at the same time exploring the color and value of an object by keeping backgrounds subdued or shadowed. With Trompe l'oeil precision, common and under-appreciated objects take on a fresh and unexpected persona. His photorealism works are often images of moving water stopped in time. Schieffer has been recognized and awarded by numerous prestigious organizations, such as the Women's Caucus for Art, the Starr Foundation, the National Society of Illustrators, Tempe Center for the Arts, and the Discovery Museum in Bridgeport, Ct.
