Pieter Schoolwerth is a New York-based multimedia painter of art history, drawing from and recreating scrambled versions of works by famous artists like Pieter Bruegel, Abraham Bloemaert, and Thomas Cole. His collages and wooden reliefs comment on the forces of abstraction in the way we live with technology. He works to define and play with the splits between virtual and material space and how those binaries defined our everyday existence. His work has been included in group exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art and The Whitney Museum of American Art.
