Henk Schut

Henk Schut is a multidisciplinary visual artist whose ideas derive from posing questions, looking into environments, communities, historical events and current affairs. With each project he looks for the most suitable form in which to express his ideas. His work often contains a certain playfulness - without trivializing the subject, but in way that reinforces its explanatory power. He has an integrative approach to the environment where he presents his work. Architectural space and sound therefor often play an important role.

The diversity of his skills gives him the freedom to move between different art forms. Each art form nurtures the other and themes develop through the different disciplines. Any specific work is a crystallization of this continuous proces. 

In the last few years his work has been shown at Nieuw Dakota, This Art Fair, KadS (Kunst aan de Schinkel), NDSM (winner NDSM Open 2019), Soledad Senlle Art Foundation, Noord-Holland BiĆ«nnale, Art Rotterdam, V International Arts Festival Magdeburg and De Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam. For the Van Gogh Museum he created the large scale art installation The Van Gogh Mile (2012-2013), which was named Best work of Art of 2012 by art critic Bianca Stigter of NRC.
