Lakes, Rivers and Seas


A series of Gutmann’s paintings and pigment works on paper, Lakes, Rivers and Seas brings together a body of works accomplished in the artist’s studio in Basel, Switzerland.


Lakes, Rivers and Seas reflects the artist’s European roots, her history, and her creative path from the lake of her birthplace, to the rivers Hudson, Rhone, Rhine and Seine, to the seas that connect nations and cultures from being to being and shore to shore.



Enriched and informed by the artist’s collaborations with authors Mahmood Farooqui, Walter Bargen and Varinia Oberto, and composer Barry Guy, these paintings and works on paper were accomplished in the artist’s studios in New York, the Drôme and Paris.
