Solo exhibition Has Been at Fri Art Kunsthalle, Fribourg, Switzerland.
Has Been gathers a selection of works made between 1981 and 1991 by the Dutch painter Peter Schuyff. This exhibition, organized jointly with the Consortium in Dijon, is the first retrospective look at the artist's career. Arriving in New York in the early 1980s, Schuyff brought into play the countless stories of abstraction by drawing on a vocabulary then considered exhausted.
Solo exhibition at Galerie Gabriel Rolt, Amsterdam.
Galerie Gabriel Rolt is delighted to announce PETER SCHUYFF, the artist’s second solo exhibition at the gallery.
Peter Schuyff has been key to the abstract art landscape for over more than 30 years. Rooted in the concepts of the 80’s artistic movement Neo- Geo, the typical patterns of Schuyff’s canvasses, consisting of geometrical and tridimensional shapes, persist in what seems to be an eternal movement. The use of primary forms, like squares and circles, suggests the existence of a primordial world, made by pure geometry. It’s here, in this indefinable dimension, that these different lines and shapes meet light, the essential element which initiate their calm mobility...
Solo exhibition Twenty One Watercolors and a Painting at Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, NYC, NY.
A hallmark of Schuyff’s remarkable output since the 1980s has been the interplay of surface pattern and optically convincing geometry, achieved through what Richard Hell has called “masses of color and shades of form.” Drawing fluidly upon modernist and postmodernist approaches to abstraction, Schuyff uses the language of paint to marry seemingly irreconcilable elements: biomorphic shape and algorithmic repetition, allover flatness and tightly rendered drop shadows...
Included in the group exhibition Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC, NY.
The 2014 Biennial brings together the findings of three curators with very distinct points of view. There is little overlap in the artists they have selected and yet there is common ground. This can be seen in their choice of artists working in interdisciplinary ways, artists working collectively, and artists from a variety of generations. Together, the 103 participants offer one of the broadest and most diverse takes on art in the United States that the Whitney has offered in many years.
