Lot description
Each work is 16 x 12.5 in.

Creating a look of transparency through his handkerchief-like forms, this suite of 6 'Untitled' works by Peter Schuyff captures the artist's love for dynamic forms and complex patterns. Achieving a sense of the three-dimensional through a two-dimensional surface, Schuyff pushes the boundaries of perception and tromp l'oeil effects in these watercolor on paper works executed in 1986.

Born in Baarn, Holland, Neo-Geo artist Peter Schuyff (b. 1958) is known for his compelling self portraits, paintings executed on found paintings, and intricately carved baseball bats and pencils. For Schuyff, music has a resonating influence on much of his work, integrating rhythm and harmonious structures into complex compositions of interweaving forms. He often employs a vividly bright palette within his work, creating an elusive tromp l’oeil effect throughout the surfaces. Schuyff currently lives and works in Amsterdam. He has exhibited extensively throughout the world with shows at the Museum of Contemporary Art (New York, NY), Fodor Museum (Amsterdam, NL), Centre National d'Art Contemporian (Nice, IT), and Larry Gagosian Gallery (Los Angeles, CA), among others.
