David Schutter

Visual Arts

David Schutter, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Visual Arts, creates paintings that are performative reenactments of canonical works, frequently drawing inspiration from the Dutch masters. Locating his practice within the traditions of philosophical inquiry, Schutter’s works are a form of phenomenological study that discusses the distances and problems encountered when making a painting. He has had solo exhibitions at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Gemäldegalerie Berlin; the National Gallery of Modern Art, Scotland; the Tony Wight Gallery, Chicago; and Aurel Scheibler, Berlin, among other venues.
