This event has ended.

David Schutter’s current project addresses two still life paintings, one by Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin (2 November 1699–6 December 1779) in the collection of the National Gallery of Art, Scotland and a second by Juan Sanchez-Cotan (June 25, 1560–September 8, 1627) in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. Having studied the two works first hand through drawings, field notes, and archival research, Schutter has “re-made” multiple versions of each of the two paintings in a 1-to-1 scale with like materials and without aid memoires. Each set of paintings yielded different forms of drawing attendant to the paintings. Less a test of memory, Schutter’s practice is more a phenomenological study that discusses the distances and problems encountered when making a painting. The works in the exhibition are as much performative re-enactments of the sources as they are discreet paintings and drawings, and as such form a painter’s repertory of extended rehearsals.
