Bart De Zutter

°1961, Eeklo, Belgium 

Bart De Zutter is fascinated by nature, its processes, organisms and materials. Always departing from this starting point, he creates a surprising and yet consistent body of work which reflects in its own way on the relations between volume, matter and concept. For Beaufort02 De Zutter personally cut a boat out of an enormous tree-stump of lime wood. In doing so De Zutter adheres to his regular themes and in addition he gives the artist a prominent place as an artisan. As for the use of materials and labour-intensiveness, his work can be compared with the work of the South African artist Andries Botha in De Panne.
