Jeffrey Butters: Passages

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday October 05
Butters
520 NW Davis St., 2nd floor
 
In a triptych of ravishing oil paintings, Jeffrey Butters perfects a style he has been reaching toward in recent series. Cadmium Reaction I and VI, as well as Manganese Reaction I, overlay luscious impasto atop gold dust and powder pigment. Butters begins this process by rubbing the powders over wet gesso. This creates the basis for compositions that combine the extreme surfaces of van Gogh with the delicate, washy optical nature of Monet. The works’ most surprising achievement is to function as heavily layered objects while depicting wispy clouds and mists that threaten to float out of their very frames. Oct. 2 through Nov. 2.
