Contemporary Expressionist Art
John is a well known artist who lives and works on the Central Coast. He has had a long exhibiting career with many solo exhibitions and many paintings as finalists in Art Prizes as well as a couple of winners.
The John Butler Art site provides information about upcoming shows, exhibitions and images of past projects, as well as information about John's artistic journey from dream to realization.
When not making Art John is often found immersed in the landscape, usually by water, chasing fish and inspiration
My need to paint joins me in a very long conga line of people who struggle to make sense of the world without the seemingly selfish pleasure of playing on a two dimensional plane with line and form and colour. Afterwards I can often make a “story “out of what I’ve made, but the process rarely works in reverse.
Living in Terrigal and working as a GP at Headspace Gosford life is in balance, the chaos of the work day and of the lives of the young people I support has its counterweight in the hours in the studio. The current paintings are playing mostly on the edge of abstract expressionism and are mostly concerned with landscape, although there are allusions to a world weary view of humanity and the sacredness of wild places, foxes and other scapegoats.
Due to COVID 19 Restrictions 2020 Exhibition was cancelled.
Date for 2021 Exhibition remains uncertain
Opening will be announced soon
