Tom Butler: Divided Self
In the Print Sales Gallery
Tom Butler (b.1979, London) uses a background in sculpture and fine art to manifest an interest in manipulating surfaces, re-framing memories and uncovering hidden psyches.
He is best known for his on-going series of original Victorian ‘cabinet’ cards - featuring formal photographic portraits of men, women and children – which he transforms through precise interventions including hand-painting, gouache application and intricate collage.
Showcasing the newest additions to Butler's growing family of adopted ancestors, this exhibition surveys the unique hand of the artist, his intervention with vintage photographs and the possibilities to reinvigorate the medium of photography itself.
