Leo Coyte: Pizzeria

Leo Coyte'?s recent paintings continue his investigation into assembled portraiture. The works in Pizzeria can largely be reduced to the most basic, almost childlike elements we associate with a face: two eyes a nose and a mouth. Although at the same time, careful compositions and the oddity of the objects that ?stand in? for features amount to images that are far more complex than that.

Art Exhibition previously on in New South Wales, Australia.
From Tuesday 23 July 2013 to Saturday 17 August 2013

Coyte is drawn to the playful push-and-pull layering of representation and abstraction, the flat and the perspectival ? each of these modes finds a way of existing within his work.

Leo Coyte graduated from the College of Fine Arts, UNSW, with a Master of Fine Arts in 2003. He has held solo exhibitions at Firstdraft Gallery, MOP Projects, Grantpirrie and db Project. Coyte has been a finalist in the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship (2001) and is currently a finalist in both the Art on Paper: Hazelhurst Art Award (Hazelhurst Regional Gallery) and The Churchie National Emerging Art Prize (Griffith University Art Gallery). His work is held in the collections of Artbank Australia and Sydney University as well as numerous private collections.
