Peter Schuyff

Peter Schuyff born in 1958 in Baarn and he is a painter, sculptor and musician. He was a prominent member of the Neo - Geo movement and showed his work at Pat Hearn Gallery (1983), Gagosian Gallery (1985) and Leo Castelli Gallery (1987). Schuyff’s paintings tipically feature undulating figures that jump around the canvas and weave through themselves. Schuyff positions these forms against realistic imagery, juxtaposing two seemingly dissimilar styles of painting. In 2017 a Survey of work made between 1981 - 89 was shown at Le Consortium, Dijon. Other more recent shows include the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2005), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2011), the Whitney Biennial, New York (2014), Sorry We’re Closed, Brussels (2014), Fri Art, Fribourg (2017), HE.RO Gallery, Amsterdam (2018) and Carl Kostyal, London (2018). Peter Schuyff's work is in the collections of MOMA, NY; MOCA, LA; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY and The Fisher Landau Foundation. Peter Schuyff lives and works in Amsterdam.
