This event has ended.

Benjamin Butler is well-known for his paintings of landscapes and trees that trace the boundary between representation and abstraction. In these new works, Butler further deconstructs the tree motif, moving deeper into abstract territory. Simplified forms, contrasting color, and varying marks and brushstrokes evoke the work of Piet Mondrian; the American Abstraction of Arthur Dove and Milton Avery; as well as the painting of Frank Stella and Barnett Newman. By combining such reference points with elements of decorative art and kitsch, Butler offers a unique meditation on contemporary painting.
