Steam Whistle - Do One Thing Really, Really Well

Bleeding Blue

Steam Whistle Gallery APRIL ART SHOW, exhibiting April 3-30, 2017

The Bleeding Blue series captures the likenesses of our iconic Toronto Blue Jays players with Shuter’s strong graphic detailing and strikingly bold, abstracted backgrounds. The work was showcased at the Rogers Centre’s Luxury Summit Lounge in August 2016 in support of the Jays Care Foundation, and the entire collection is viewable at 

Samara Marlee Shuter (b. 1986) is a contemporary Canadian artist known for her strikingly bold paintings of men’s suits. Born in Montreal, Shuter is an untrained artist who began her career in the film industry. Since 2012, Shuter has staged multiple solo exhibitions of her work, participated in numerous group exhibitions, and donated her work to major publicinstitutions and charities. Her work has been showcased throughout Canada and the United States at such esteemed sites as the Rockefeller Center in NY and the Bronx Museum of the Arts. She has been sought out by Facebook, Timberland Shoes, and the Toronto International Film Festival for special projects featuring her art. Shuter allows her past experiences to inform her artwork: the bold colours and graphic patterns for which Shuter is renowned are largely inspired by the artist’s family roots in the textile industry. Her work is largely inspired by her explorations of the “suit,” and themes of nostalgia, belonging, and self-actualization. Shuter currently lives and works in Toronto.

DJ Field McQueen will be spinning at the opening night reception.
