"Sunkist", Oil, 68"x 78", 2000

Jim Butler paintings and sculptures distill perception.
He received a BFA from The Rhode Island School Of Design and an MFA from Indiana University. Painting is primary, but consideration of the medium is malleable. Blown and fused glass, material flip-side of painting's coin, is a favorite material. So is narrative. His images pin seen moments and emotional sensation.
He lives and works between Brooklyn, NY and Shoreham, Vt.
