|William Butcher: "The Reflection"|
William Butcher finds the inspiration to create by allowing his subconscious visions and imagery, generated by the heart and mind, to come to the surface. The thoughts and ideas that present themselves to the artist, via our visual world, take form in his paintings and sculptures. His work is constantly in the process of reaffirming itself. Butcher states that he "is driven to bring these to life in a visual form... It is only in allegory that I can hope to garner a meager understanding of the hidden forces that drive my compulsion to create." The praxis of unfolding one's inner thoughts and feelings into visual language has become William Butcher's attempt in exploring the mysterious and spiritual curiosities of human life and nature.
The show will be on display from Feb. 7—Mar. 14 at Reynolds Fine Art located in New Haven’s historic 9th square on 96 Orange St. The show's opening reception will be held on Fri., Feb. 7, from 5—8 p.m.
