Robert Lostutter’s quixotic heads, tightly enclosed in bird feathers or flower petals, gaze serenely, as if it were the most natural look in the world. The artist's watercolors are ultra meticulous, riveting and unexplainable. They possess an alluring strangeness with surrealist qualities. Lostutter is currently featured in an exhibition at the Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, WI. Visit our Newsworthy page for more info and read an interview with the artist in our Press Pages.
"I carry a pocket notebook everywhere I go...When I go to the movies, I look down the aisle at peoples' ears. I register variations in ears in my notebook -- or I may go back home and draw them from memory. Sometimes I just stop what I'm doing and draw." -Robert Lostutter
