Much More Than Dots

Peter Schuyff uses dots, circles and combinations thereof (and other shapes) to hijack his compositions. These pretty little disruptors have a charm all their own, coaxing us to reconsider how things work in the picture plane.  This image is from the Self Portraits, at his Website and he also does the same kind of thing in the Drawings On Drawings Series. But then he wanders off in other directions; or so it seems. My impression is that he's just teasing us with simple complexities: plumbing any deeper meaning is up to us.

You really should do a little research before coming to any conclusions. There's some very beautiful work out there, not shown on his site.

If you were wondering what makes him tick, watch this video for an unusual bit of entertainment.
