Sharon Butler Precisionist Casual at POCKET UTOPIA

February 8, 2013

Published on Jan 28, 2013

With Precisionist Casual, Sharon Butler fleshes out her June 2011, Brooklyn Rail essay “ABSTRACT PAINTING: The New Casualists”. This series of intimately scaled works have a relaxed feel, yet contain a formalistic consideration of the standard painters materials of canvas, stretcher-bars and staples. Manipulating these constituent parts, Butler attempts to imply a more conscious awareness of what a painting is, and therefore what “painting” is. Sharon Butler is also a well-known blogger and creator of TWO COATS OF PAINT (http://www.twocoatsofpaint.com/), and gives an spontaneous interview and tour of this exhibition.
