Alexa here to bring a bit of contemporary art to your Monday evening. Trevor Gutherie is a Zurich-based artist who is well-known for his large-scale, photorealistic charcoal drawings that appropriate art history, found photographs, and imagery from contemporary culture with an often mordant wit. “Appropriation for me is a subtle business,” he explains.
“There is a certain aesthetic that I am searching for; the oddball that lends itself to be exploited in my medium.”
His work often incorporates cinematic references, and he counts Peter Greenaway, Terry Gilliam, Stanley Kubrik, and Roman Polanski as influences. You can see more here.
