MARK BUTLER BIOGRAPHY

 

 

Stemming from a long tradition of Bay Area figurative painting, Butler’s current work continues, through a contemporary and personal lens, the perennial and existential question of interrelationships between people, nature, history, and their environs. His work has been exhibited nationally in museums and galleries and is included in many private collections. BFA, California College of the Arts, 1991, Mark Butler lives and works near San Francisco, California.

“Silhouettes of figures, objects floating, life cycles of animals, subtle lines and bold symbols combine to indicate an allegory that is open for interpretation. I work from my own language of painting, informed by familiarity and experimentation. From intimate spaces bathed in lamplight to dense patterns of sunlight and shadow in a deciduous forest, to possibly catastrophic events such as a flood; these depictions act as metaphorical allusions to interior, emotional landscapes.” -MB
