Introducing the innovative original collage of
Tom Butler is one of the most innovative, imaginative and accomplished artists working in the UK. Drawing on a wide variety of media from broadsheet newspapers to tabloids, to the glossy supplements, his witty and creative collages are crammed with ideas and incident.
Highly sophisticated and complex in their concept and execution, they contain a wealth of detail and energy, and we are constantly taken by surprise as we witness a section of a crossword puzzle transforming into a tower block, a wine bottle, or a church spire. Butler’s style and process are unique, and each composition blends transparent and solid substances making them smooth in some areas and textured in others; every cityscape, coastal scene, or explosive abstract becomes a layered tapestry of shapes, textures and colours.
