Alexander Schutt’s paintings are acrylic poured on canvas. Sometimes the paint is half an inch deep and can take a week to dry. He has a vision of texture, of how the paint feels in large quantities of how to knit colors together with his paintbrush. Sometimes he will wipe a canvas clean and start over. Sometimes he selects an old painted canvas to cover with a new palette. The stratum of colors on the side of the canvas is a visual history of the work he has done.
Alexander’s work has shown at Wondrous on Witherspoon Gallery in Princeton, New Jersey (2016, 2017), at Monmouth University (2017, 2018), at Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital (2017, 2018, 2019). He had a solo show in June 2018 at 12 Farms Restaurant in Hightstown, New Jersey and at The Gamm Theatre in Warwick, Rhode Island in 2019. He was invited to show his work at the Long Beach Island (NJ) Foundation Arts Festival in July & November 2019.
