Artist’s Project: David Scher


“Into the Green,” a suite of 15 drawings by David Scher from early May 2003, represents the artist’s exploration of the theme of man merging with nature. These intense, exquisite artworks, produced by Scher in a single day, breathe new life into the much-explored relationship between figure and ground.

Artist David Scher, who shows with Jean Brolly in Paris and Pierogi in New York, has made music with Frank Noise and the Logs of Wood for over 30 years. He also heads the design entity Dept. of Lettering and co-founded Subvoyant. Scher’s work has been exhibited extensively in the U.S., Mexico, and Europe. His work is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In 2012, he received the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation Grant.
