  4. DAILY ART FIX:

    Peter Schuyff’s characteristic style is exemplified in this humorous layered painting. Interested in the relationship between reality and fantasy, Schuyff appropriates a traditional portrait and overlays a playful, abstract form—appearing like oversized sunglasses—across the subject’s face, undercutting the gravitas of traditional portraiture.

    Huang Yan is known for overlaying traditional Chinese paintings on his models’ faces and torsos. This work is a particularly striking—the painted subject looks directly at the viewer, his cultural heritage deeply imbedded into his personal identity, not unlike a tattoo.

    Don’t Worry Why (2011) by Emilio Perez

    Having always been attracted to painting and drawing, Perez’s unique practice is a back and forth conversation between the two mediums. As he brushes wet-on-wet passages over a thin, atmospheric sprayed-on ground, colors blend and physical depth is built. He then commits to drawing back into the surface—slicing into it with a sharp Exacto knife— to peel away large and small areas that define the composition.
