Peri Schwartz

New Rochelle, NY | by August 5, 2013

Peri Schwartz con­tacted me about her work and cur­rent video that was cre­ated mainly for a recent inter­view she did with the Huff­in­g­ton Post Blog. (Link is below). I thought the video pre­sented an ele­gant artic­u­la­tion about the use of the Mod­ernist grid. Her ded­i­ca­tion to for­mal­ism through still life is not any­thing new, but the way she mixes her color cre­ates a mood that brings mean­ing to the mun­dane. I espe­cially am drawn to the com­po­si­tions that recall the paint­ings of William Bai­ley at times.

Peri Schwartz grew up in Far Rock­away, NY. She stud­ied at Boston University’s School of Fine Arts and received an MFA at Queens Col­lege. She lives and works in New Rochelle, NY. In paint­ings, prints and draw­ings she focuses on com­po­si­tion and the inter­play of color, light and space. To see more of her work, please go to her web­site at

The recent inter­view where this video can also be viewed and where an exten­sive inter­view with Peri Schwartz is posted can be found on the Huff­in­g­ton Post Blog.
