Michael Kutschbach

Final Year Supervisor


Michael Kutschbach is a South Australian based artist and educator whose work encompasses drawing, sculpture, installation, painting and video. His practice is material and process-based, resulting in aesthetic/haptic outcomes that play at the borders of abstraction.

Michael Kutschbach’s work is characterised by a playful search for forms that are new, unfixed and in a literal or suggestive state of flux. He employs interdisciplinary strategies using the transition between fields and materials as a generative process in his work.

He studied painting at the Victorian College of the Arts from1993 to 1996, before completing a Masters (Visual Art) at the South Australian School of Art in 2004, and a Masters (Fine Art) at the Chelsea College of Art and Design, London in 2006.

Michael is a lecturer at the Adelaide Central School of Art and the University of South Australia, and in 2011 was Guest Professor at the UdK, Berlin. His extensive exhibition history includes projects and exhibitions through Semjon Contemporary in Berlin, Galerie Carolyn Heinz in Hamburg and Art Bodensee in Austria.

In 2020 Michael will develop new work through the Guildhouse Collections Project with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and the Adelaide Festival Centre.
