Steve Dutton is an artist, teacher, artistic researcher and occasional curator. He is currently developing a new body artwork under the working title of “the phantom industry” which is including drawings, sound works, animations, objects and large scale texts . His work is difficult to classify, as it moves between various media, materials, processes and forms. Dutton also works in collaborations, currently with Andrew Bracey on a Curatorial project entitled 'Midpointness' which has had manifestations for the Lock Up Gallery in Newcastle, Australia, The Trans Art Triennial and Airspace in Stoke-on-Trent, UK. In the past he worked closely with Steve Swindells (Dutton and Swindells) since 1998, prior to which he was one half of the collaboration of Dutton and Peacock. Individual and collaborative projects have been exhibited throughout the UK and internationally, including The Stag and Hound at PSL in Leeds UK for which Dutton and Swindells were nominated for the Northern Art Prize. (Please see CV for a full list of recent projects). He has recently been published in the Journal of Studies in Theatre and Performance as well being published in the Journal of Writing in Creative Practice and the Journal of Visual Arts Practice along with many contributions to various magazines and publications.
