Pieter Schoolwerth – Virtual Relief

Pieter Schoolwerth’s new cycle of work Painting in the last Instance captures invisible flows of abstraction that structure contemporary experience. The recurring use of compression and superimposition in his imagery turns those elusive flows into motifs for an elaborate new kind of figurative painting focusing on group portraiture. In his work the stuff of paint itself appears at the end of a layered, multi-media process only to supplement an already constituted image. For his solo debut at K-T Z Schoolwerth pulls his uncannily illusionistic paintings into three dimensions, existing as freestanding virtual landscapes that the viewer can literally 'see through’.
