Alan Shields

American , 1944 -

Born in 1944 in Kansas, Alan Shields attended Kansas State University before moving to New York. He received the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in 1973, and he currently lives on Shelter Island.

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