About the Work
Each print was hand-finished by Pieter Schoolwerth, layering acrylic brushstrokes over the printed brushstrokes.
Schoolwerth’s ‘painting in the last instance’ captures invisible flows of abstraction that structure contemporary experience, and turns them into motifs for an elaborate new kind of figurative painting. In his work, the materiality of paint itself reappears as a supplement only at the end of a complex, multi-media effort to produce a figurative picture depicting the ‘once removed’ space of the virtual.
NoRecord3_2019 revisits Schoolwerth’s Your Vacuum Sucks series from 2014- 2015, which combines photography, digital processing and printing, drawing, and painting to produce contemporary portraits that abstract and destabilize the human figure and its environment through processing the image through these various technologies.
Pieter Schoolwerth (b. 1970, St. Louis, MO) has held solo exhibitions at Petzel (New York), KTZ (Berlin), Kunstverein Hannover, Thread Waxing Space (New York), Greene Naftali (New York), American Fine Arts Co., Miguel Abreu Gallery (New York) Galerie SKE (New Delhi), Galerie Nathalie Obadia (Paris, Brussels) and Capitain Petzel (Berlin). His work has been included in group exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art (New York), The Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College (New York), The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art (Ridgefield, CT), the Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston), Sadie Coles HQ (London), Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler (Berlin), and Gavin Brown Enterprises (New York).

Schoolwerth’s first monograph, Model as Painting, was published by Sequence Press in 2019. He lives and works in New York.
Authentication & Resale

All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
