Born in Stuttgart in 1973, André Butzer established his own style mingling the two disparate contexts of his German heritage and the increasing presence of American culture. Conscious of the interplay between the painterly reality and the readymade, Butzer strives to revive the importance of painting and the meaning of human existence. With an emphasis on rhythm and the study of colour and light, he revisits the history of painting. Moreover, he builds a spiritual home on the canvas which lingers between dream and reality. His work’s recollection of German history, resonances of Friedrich Hölderlin’s poems as well as references to Walt Disney enable him to envision an enduring life under the auspices of human nature and community.

🌍 NASAHEIM 🌎

As a recurring manifestation of his practice, NASAHEIM is a utopia reincarnated in painting. “NASA” is taken from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, referring to the unknown and untouchable cosmos, while “HEIM” in German refers to home, representing the familiarity within reach. This invented universe not only points to his protected inner world, but also suggests that painting itself inhabits a space in-between far and near. Butzer is able to break away from earthbound measurements, surpass the concept of time, wander between heaven and earth, and be free of all ties.

Even though lighthearted figures appear repeatedly throughout Butzer’s œuvre, the aura of life and the crisis wrought by modernity echo in his paintings. As Butzer states: “Don’t believe the hype. Find truth in presence, attendance, community. Stay uncalculable and remain a being of risk, embrace the risk. Science is not real. Rhythm will always return and annihilate what is untrue, virtual, statistic and godless.”
