Peter Schuyff

White Cube Mason's Yard, London

March 13 - May 16, 2020

White Cube Mason’s Yard presents the first comprehensive show in London by Peter Schuyff, featuring large-scale acrylic paintings produced during the 1980s. The paintings on show feature a variety of approaches to geometric abstraction. In some, a monochrome ground is overlaid with a grid while in others, thinly painted geometric shapes hover over schematic spatial backgrounds. Employing layers of diluted acrylic paint, Schuyff’s deftly graduated tones create light across the picture’s surface, sometimes in direct opposition to the dynamics of its composition.
