Joyce Utting Schutter - Artist Statement

Every life touches another. From the microscopic to the cosmic, we are intertwined. The beauty and the imperative of this interconnectivity is a major theme in my work. Here on Cape Cod, surrounded by so much that bears witness to this relationship, I am constantly inspired. In these times when so much threatens to break down this balance, I feel a growing responsibility to incarnate these concerns in my work.

Often when creating a piece, I attempt to capture some of what I see as the visual music of the world around me, synthesizing a harmony of natural and human design.
