Claudette Schreuders (b. 1973) is based in Cape Town, South Africa.
Schreuders is an internationally renowned sculpture and printmaker. She is represented by STEVENSON in South Africa, and Jack Shainman Gallery in New York.
The Bystander 2 follows a line of work that seeks to ‘make public that which is private’. The work, a remarkably skilled piece of printmaking, playfully uncovers the middle-class condition. Its darker overtones work to uncover the lighter green, yellows and ochre that form its details.
Schreuder’s nine colour lithograph is hand printed on Arches paper by Andrea Steer at the Printmaking Studio at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in Cape Town.
Born in 1973 in Pretoria, Claudette Schreuders lives and works in Cape Town, where she graduated with a master’s degree from the Michaelis School of Fine Art. In 2004/5 her first solo museum exhibition toured the United States. She has shown extensively on group exhibitions, including Impressions from South Africa, 1965 to Now at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2011); Mami Wata: Arts for water spirits in Africa and its diasporas, at the Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University, and the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC, among other venues (2009-2011); Peekaboo: Current South Africa at the Tennis Palace Art Museum, Helsinki (2010); All the More Real: Portrayals of intimacy and empathy at the Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, New York (2007); Since 2000: Printmaking now at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (2006); and Personal Affects: power and poetics in contemporary South African art at the Museum for African Art and the Cathedral of St John the Divine, New York (2004), and The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu (2006).
