Biography from Thornwood Gallery:
John Schuyler began experimenting with fresco techniques in the mid-to-late 1990's.  As he explored the possibilities of fresco, Schuyler became absorbed in the coarseness created by different applications of the plaster to his canvas.  Thus, he focuses on creating very rich and dynamic textures, hoping to stir in viewers the urge to 'run a hand' over the surface of his painting.

As Schuyler's captivation with texture progressed, the content and form of his paintings became simpler.  Color studies replaced traditional forms of content in his pieces, and the balance and contrast of color became the second focal point of Schuyler's paintings.  He infuses pigment into wet plaster so that color becomes part of the texture, rather than being applied to it.  Schuyler strenuously scrapes acrylic paint and pigmented plaster from the surface of the linen in a style known as scraffito.  This technique produces very deep and luminescent colors that heighten the effect of Schuyler's composition.

Schuyler's unconventional approach to fresco is intended to leave a powerful impression on the viewer.   For him, rough texture alludes to a passionate physicality while its simplicity in form reflects a cool logic, a balance inherent in all his pieces. 

The inspiration for my work is both selective and indiscriminate. After the initial influence sparks the beginning of a painting, the piece generally takes on a vision of it's own, a relationship develops between us and occasionally conflicts must be overcome. At other times it's very passionate and I'm in the moment, not questioning the end result, trusting it will take me where it wants to go.

My work has evolved over the years and continues to undergo numerous transformations.  The ultimate intention of my work is to evoke an emotional response,  A strong feeling of any kind indicates passion and with that we can truly live life to its absolute fullest.
