"Shoe Salesman" - Jeffrey Ackerman
sepia ink and gouache on paper
8" x 6"
Jeffrey Ackerman studied painting and sculpture at Washington University, School of Fine Arts, St. Louis, MO and SUNY at Albany in their Fine Arts program. He makes his home in Morrill Maine where he lives with his artist wife Kathy Weinberg. Jeff also creates cast bronze sculptures and writes art criticism. Jeff states: "Drawings are often used to generate ideas, characters and situations but this piece moves in the opposite direction. It is a study, after the fact, using elements from my sculptures and paintings. Having already invented these characters, I could concentrate on inventing the situation, an otherworldly, erotic celestial drama—not the ordinary one the title suggests."
