Stafford Schliefer, the great Jamaican painter, is now in his 75th year, and shows absolutely no sign of slowing down.  I received these two superb small paintings in the gallery today.  Both “Caribbean Fisherman” and “Still Life with Roses and Hibiscus” are strong and vital paintings, bursting at the seams with beauty and energy.  When taken out of context, some passages, such as the basket of fish on the beach, or the interior of the vase,  look like perfect abstract paintings…..sch1sch2
