Ellen Hallie Schiff

Glen Cove, New York

I have been an artist for fifteen years.  I took up painting as an adult and have studied at the School of Visual Arts Summer Residency; Massachusetts College of Art at Bennington College Summer Workshops. I have studied with American Abstract painter Stan Brodsky as well as Christian White, great grandson of Architect Stanford White.  I work primarily in enamel and oil paint, in black and white after painting with color for 12 years. My influences are from the NY Abstract Expressionist tradition. My art can be seen on the set of WCBS-TV's The Good Wife and is in Law Offices in Manhattan as well as many private collections in the U.S. and Europe.  Currently my art explores the addition of the random and accidental in my work, i.e. spills, smears, etc. in concert with the process of "beating up" the material until it becomes something else. All my experiences, hopes, dreams and desires up til then find their way into my work and into the paint. When my work is going well it exudes an off-hand yet  powerful quality. My work has been described as very emotional.  I have just had an exhibit with Gallery Pii in Philadelphia. I am curating and exhibiting  an exhibit this January on Long Island, "Metal Paper Tape Go!".  I also teach workshops for artists in water-based enamel painting techniques.
