Catalogue Note

"Schütte's drawings, whether rendered in ink or in watercolor, express an almost cartoonlike humility and an economy of means that belie both their gravitas and their poetic invocation of the existential dilemmas of being human."

Jarla Partilager, ‘What is to be done?’ in: Jarla Partilager, Ed., Thomas Schütte, p. 6.
