  • Catalogue Essay

    The unmasked pleasure in the physical act of painting is evidnet in André Butzer's Untitled (2007). A sense of immediacy is articulated through the heavy impasto technique and vivid, almost neon-toned colours. Butzer doodles wildly over dark or light backgrounds in separated, unblended clusters, reminiscent of Joan Mitchell’s abstract expressionist canvases. His embrace of an unapologetically bright and varied paint box is conceptual: "Colour is basically about history. To animate colour is historic in the way that the image will tell us about the future and the past."
