Born in Stuttgart in 1973, Andre Butzer is a contemporary German painter. His work explores themes of romanticism and how those themes relate to his artistic practice in the contemporary environment. Butzer’s work whilst heavily influenced by German expressionism and popular culture is further defined by the development of artificially exaggerated realities. Often characterized as ‘Science-Fiction-Expressionism’, Butzer’s work represents a highly articulate style that balances somewhere between complete abstraction and figuration. Butzer has participated in numerous group exhibtions including Oldenburger Kunstverein, MUMOK, Vienna, ZKM – Museum für Kunst und Medientechnologie, Karlsruhe, Kestnergesellschaft, Hanover (all in 2008); Rubell Family Collection, Miami (2007); Collection Goetz, Munich (2006); Museum der Moderne Salzburg, Carré d’art – Musée d’art contemporain de Nîmes, Museum am Ostwall, Dortmund, Kunstverein Ulm (all in 2005); Kunsthalle Hamburg, Kunstverein Graz, Kunstverein Frankfurt (all in 2003) and Kunsthalle Baden-Baden (2002). The artist continues to live and work in Rangsdorf just outside of Berlin.
