Title: ‘Mental States’
Description: Butler Archive is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice focuses on the intentional removal of informational excess through a subtle, minimalistic approach. His work fixates on the significance of clarity in content, while upholding an uncompromising attitude towards achieving figurativism in a minimalistic art form. Butler grasps at the purity of objects in their rawest form, depicting just how possible it is to dissect the physical personality, without eliminating the elementary aspects of allure that many contemporary individuals relate to.
This new body of work titled “Mental States” comprises of a series of left hand drawings inspired by self-reflection and meditation. Meant to communicate change and fluidity in human nature, the purpose of these drawings is to reflect modern society as it is right now – the hope is that the audience will get into a state of self-reflection as well.
