The One Dozen Roses series started in 2014 as a tribute to the antiwar movement and student strikes of the late 60’s, and was created from the artist’s photos of aging roses.  Its themes of beauty, aging and death were deepened by the January 2015 terrorist attack and killings of 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris. The French captions are a reference to the international response of the Je Suis Charlie movement. This is an ongoing series, as any of the individual works are sold, Schuette replaces them with a new painting to keep the full dozen complete and alive.

All paintings are 50” x 40" acrylic on canvas.
