DWAYNE BUTCHER: FAT SHAMING FAT BOYS
David Lusk Gallery Nashville / 516 Hagan St., Nashville , TN February 27, 2019 - March 30, 2019
"Recently, I have made work that deals with body issues that are not usually addressed as they relate to the stereotypical masculine male." — Dwayne Butcher
Dwayne 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. For several years he has made work on black canvases with white text that examines normal conventions of gender and social class. Now, he chooses to embrace his male identity and related male body issues, both addressed and denied.
