Drawn, Cut & Layered: The Art of Werner Pheiffer

By Pfeiffer, Werner

Toledo, Ohio : Toledo Museum of Art , 2015 For more than 50 years, Werner Pfeiffer (German-American, born 1937) has experimented with the multiple uses of paper as both a canvas and a structural material. Much of his work as a sculptor, printmaker and painter suggests a fascination with machines and machine-like constructions. His drawings are schematic, his dimensional works project into space claiming their own territory and his complex artist books have moving parts. He is fascinated by puzzles and contradictions, metaphors and wordplay, and this curiosity serves in turn to inspire works that are thought-provoking in themselves. A prodigious artist, Pfeiffer’s works on paper have been shown and collected internationally, according to the Toledo Museum of Art catalog where his work was exhibited in 2015. In a clear heavy plastic box, this resource outlines the process of creating a sculpture using recycled paper and simple organic and geometric shapes.
