DANIEL BOUTHOT
[click on image for larger view]
My interests lie in creating conceptually-based installations for
non-traditional sites.  Recent works appropriate an extant object and
modify it, thus often escaping immediate discovery and, when found,
leaving the viewer unsure as to their status as a work of art.  In blending
into the environment and going unnoticed (if only temporarily), these
works reflect my broader interest in complicating the line between art and
everyday life by finding new means of inserting art into life.
American artist Daniel Bouthot (b. 1982 Maine) creates large and small scale, site-based sculptures that have been
exhibited in a variety of locations including galleries, sculpture parks, libraries, and even a cemetery.  Working without a
studio, he maintains a transient art practice traveling often to New York, throughout the northeast, and most recently to
Minneapolis to do projects.  He has shown at venues including The Soap Factory and Franconia Sculpture Park in
Minnesota, Paper Circle Gallery in Ohio, and internationally at the Palazzetto Cenci in Rome and the Palazzo dei Consoli in
Gubbio, Italy. He currently makes his home on the coast of Maine where in addition to producing his own art he also
works for the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and teaches at George Stevens Academy, a private high school in Blue
Hill, Maine.  He received his B.F.A. in Printmaking with a concentration in Art History from the Rhode Island School of
Design.
