Jason Shirriff: Ink Artist

April 5, 2008 by Fabrik Editor in Artists with 0 Comments

Jason A. D. Shirriff’s “Anschel Ink Drawings” inspire a sense of imagination and freeing from conventional Cartesian grid thinking.

“The ink drawings are tediously created and are meant to invite the viewer into a xenoscape experience; an experience of something that hasn’t been seen before, or was unknown.”Travel Tea Sets

“I try to instill discovery not only in the final image but in the process of creation as well. The drawing is influenced by my first thoughts and then becomes influenced by it’s own qualities as it evolves. The goal is to see something I haven’t seen before and then be able to study it, enjoy it and maybe learn from it,” says Shirriff.

The artwork strikes a careful balance between capturing an element of familiarity and an image totally unfamiliar or unidentifiable. One is able to capture multiple readings in the drawings where some images seem in motion or incorporate multiple perspectives. The viewer also brings their own experiences and memories to the drawings and fill in their own pieces to complete the images and their impression.

Jason has been practicing in architecture for over 2 decades and graduated from SCI-Arc in 1992. His ink drawings have evolved since 1995 when he knew he had to find a medium to draw with ink by hand after the architecture profession turned to computers. Although he employs the digital realm in his professional life, he returns regularly to his passion to put ink on paper by hand to create a unique and permanent singular drawing image. His artwork under the Anschel moniker has been published abroad and has recently been selected and exhibited in a monthly public-juried show online at www.projekt30.com. He has published a book reproducing 31 of his drawings from 1999 to 2007, which is available through his website.

Following is a sampling of work created by Jason Shirriff.
