WET AFFAIRS: New Work by Jesse Butcher
Butcher uses text-based iconography as an analysis of complex American ideas about good and evil. He presents the land's love for antagonists within his own personal mythology. He references the psychological hinterland at the core of an ultimately fear-based culture and reflects about a mean spirited society where America becomes either/or, a potential Promised Land on Earth. These Big Symbols exemplify a mentality of every man for himself in blockbuster rhetoric where grey does not exist. This results in an anarchy of Libertarianism proving that one is either black or white/damned or saved.
Exhibition continues through January 9th.
Gallery Hours: Tuesdays and Sundays from 1-5pm
