Peter Schuyff is celebrated internationally for his meticulously rendered works. Using layers of thin paint, he creates three-dimensional optical illusions of abstract patterning. A prominent alumni of Emily Carr University of Art and Design (previously the Vancouver School of Art), Dutch born and Vancouver raised Schuyff moved to New York in the 1980s, where he became one of the central figures of the Neo-Geo (Neo-Geometric Conceptualism) movement.
In his work, Schuyff interrogates the concept of the author by using appropriated imagery and re-contextualizing art history for the contemporary moment. Using either found paintings or reproductions of classical imagery, he re-interprets the work by painting a three-dimensional pattern over top. His work converges on this notion of painting having illusory qualities, while in effect still belonging to their own material reality.
Schuyff’s work has been shown at Gagosian gallery and Leo Castelli Gallery, and was recently included in the Whitney Biennial in 2014. His work is held in collections worldwide including The Broad and The MOCA in Los Angeles as well as the MoMA and The Met in New York.
