Extended Info

Schoolwerth began at Cal Arts as a conceptual artist, but a growing interest in the potential of narrative was accompanied closely by a flowering fascination with traditional figurative painting technique. He retrained himself as a craftsman of realism. Starting around 2000, he produced high-gloss super-realist tableaux.
