Nathalie Boutté (French, b. 1967) creates mesmerizing re-interpretations of historic photographs using a meticulous cutting and pasting process, and paper of all types, including vintage books, road maps, canceled bank notes, and Japanese paper. In a review for Artsy, critic Wilson Tarbox writes how, “Boutte’s collages take on a slight three-dimensionality, like fur or plumage. What results are neither photographs, sculptures, nor any other easily definable media. Rather, they are something new and emotionally charged.”
Boutté’s works on paper have been presented in exhibitions at the Domaine de Chamarande, France; Institut d’Art Contemporain, Villeurbanne, France; Centre photographique – Pôle Image Haute-Normandie, Rouen, France and Museum Rijswijk, The Netherlands, among numerous others, and toured across the United States in the 2018-2019 show Cut Up/Cut Out. Boutté is the 2012 recipient of the Kristal Prize from the Salon de Montrouge, France. The artist was born in 1967 in Senlis, France and currently lives in Montreuil, France.
