Lot description
Canvas size is 10 x 8 inches (25.4 x 20.3 cm). Paper size is 9.25 x 7.25 inches (23.5 x 18.4 cm).

This 1983 work on paper evinces the complex arrangement of geometric forms and the illusion of space often seen in Peter Schuyff's compositions. Three bright yellow cones draw the eye to the foreground, creating a sense of depth with their carefully cast shadows, while an interwoven maze of piping dominates the background.

Born in Baarn, Holland, Neo-Geo artist Peter Schuyff (b. 1958) is known for his self-portraits, works executed on found paintings, and intricately carved baseball bats and pencils. Music has been influential in much of Schuyff's work, which integrates rhythm and harmonious structures into complex compositions of interweaving forms. Schuyff often employs a vivid palette within his paintings, creating an elusive trompe l’oeil effect throughout the surfaces. His many solo exhibitions include shows at White Columns, New York, NY (1982); Pat Hearn Gallery, New York, NY (1983, 1984, 1985, and 1987); Gagosian Gallery, Los Angeles, CA (1985); Leo Castelli Gallery, New York, NY (1987); Sperone Westwater, New York, NY (1992); Paul Kasmin Gallery, New York, NY (1991 and 1994); and Tony Shafrazi Gallery, New York, NY (1996). He has also participated in group exhibitions at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, NY (2005); the Fodor Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands (1989); and the Centre National d'Art Contemporain, Nice, France (1985), among others. He lives and works in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
