David Lusk Gallery Memphis / 97 Tillman March 14, 2017 - April 22, 2017

Dwayne Butcher

Memphis, the new paintings of Dwayne Butcher, is on exhibition at David Lusk Gallery-Memphis this spring. Butcher rekindles his love of place by examining various symbols and subjects associated with the city.

Butcher, a keen social observer and curator, is known for making insightful paintings and videos that comment on his life as a card-carrying citizen of the American South. He chooses to embrace his redneck background as a way to enter the highbrow art world, relishing in contradictions that counter his southern masculine roots.
