William Dutterer

William S. Dutterer (1943–2007) was a Washington artist who moved to New York City in 1979 and continued to make innovative paintings until his death in January 2007.





 Over his 40 year career Dutterer developed his own, idiosyncratic visual vocabulary that often referenced masks (or, interchangeably, the face), wrapped objects (a mummy or a bound head), and the concept of the bystander (a witness so close as to be a possible victim of irrational acts) from his minimalist work of the ‘60s. His work engages the viewer, encouraging us to consider the impact our culture and world events have on the way we see ourselves and allow others to see us.Wikipedia
