Daniel Butcher

The abstract and sculptural paintings of Canadian artist Daniel Butcher reveal his fascination with hidden layers and the range of human expression within the materiality. In his early work, Butcher primarily worked with collage, using charcoal on paper to write poems and draw black-and-white images. He would then tear these pictures up and create abstract paintings. Employing the same technique, he made collages on large wooden panels. He continuously explored the technique of fresco and started to cover his surfaces with plaster to draw on.
