Alan Shields

Born 1944, Herington, KS. Died 2005, Shelter Island, NY.



Alan Shields was a three-dimensional collagist and, looking at his colorful personal adornments, one might say that Alan Shields was himself a collage. Shields' prints are created using multi-layered handmade papers that have been color stenciled and stitched together in grids to form box-like collage objects.
