Thomas Schütte: Edition "Fucking Flowers", 2009

Edition 2009

In addition to his large graphic work and sculpture, Thomas Schütte (born 1954) has worked on a comprehensive repertoire of graphics since the mid-1990s. He produced numerous series of lithographs and etchings characterized by experimental and technical sophistication, including series of portraits and cut-flower motifs. Particularly with the latter, Schütte reflected on topics such as "emotional states, self-awareness, interpersonal constellations, and values," said Stefanie Manthey, author of the book "Deprinotes", which was published to accompany the exhibition. This group of works also includes the "Fucking Flowers" (1996) series: "Their ambivalence is articulated in a language of flowers that encases nothing flowery, but formulates questions." 
 For this edition, Schütte selected three motifs from his series "Fucking Flowers" and reprinted these as etchings. The rust-colored floral motifs are highlighted in different colors – the largest, central motif is framed by two slightly smaller ones that are rendered in light blue and apricot. The etchings were printed on handmade paper from the 1940s from the estate of the printer Horst Janssen.
