Rina Stutzer creates both sculptural works and paintings exploring the theme of ‘the nomadic’ in a South African context. In addition to the movement of people, Stutzer is interested in liminality and shifting identities. Reflecting this in her practice, Stutzer’s recent work has explored painting with acid as an ever-changing image on copper plate and on paper.
Stutzer has won numerous awards, including the 1999 Bettie Cilliers-Barnary Bursary for excellence in painting, the 1999 SASOL New Signatures Art Competition: People’s Choice Award, and first prize in the 2007 Ekurhuleni Fine Arts Award Competition. She has participated in several group exhibitions in South Africa, the UK, and the Netherlands.
