Curt Butler • Artist Biography
His style and work aim to have multiple approaches that speak to the tradition of layering oil paint in technique and layering intent towards the viewer. Butler’s work from a distance commands the space of any room with the mood of color, composition, and iconic imagery. As we approach, the expression in the application, brush, and knife work speak louder, and we begin to see the mark making reflect the subject in raw form. Upon final inspection, we are left with a hint in title towards the artist’s origin of intent while reflecting for ourselves both complexity and simplicity of metaphor.
