Two Artists Endeavor to Represent
the Realms of the Limitless and the Majestic through Painted and Photographed Images
February 8 - March 10, 2024: Kehler Liddell Gallery presents:
William Butcher: paintings from The Portal Series/Expanding Visions and
Roy Money, photos of Mountains and Rivers
Join us for an opening reception, Saturday, February 10th, 2-5pm. A closing reception is planned for Saturday, March 9, 2-5pm.
Of The Portal Series/Expanding Visions, painter William Butcher explains that each image represents a portal into an ideal and sacred realm the artist acknowledges is beyond mortal comprehension, yet the paintings strive to serve as a glimpse into his deeply personal musings and visions of the ethereal universe.
Photographer Roy Money borrows a phrase from traditional Chinese landscape painting, Mountains and Rivers, which refers to the totality of nature and his pictures range widely across many different physical features of Asian landscapes. As a representation of totality, the Mountains and Rivers theme also points to the relationality of all these elements and that everything is composed of many parts. Money’s first trip to China inspired his return to photography 15 years ago and then subsequent trips as well.
