Daniel and Matthew Butterworth

Daniel and Matthew Butterworth

This is an exhibition of collaborative paintings. 


Daniel usually begins the work taking it to a point where he feels he can’t add any more, then hands it on to Matthew who weaves his own vision with that of his brother’s. The result is often confronting, both in subject matter and style, although their ‘in your face’ approach is tinged with humour such as with the Y-fronted ‘Smike’ in the Tom Robert’s background. Through the works in this exhibition the brothers aim to humanise and demystify the artist, asking ‘if highly regarded artists of the past were around today, what would they be painting”? The answer if often irreverent and usually challenging.

 

All the paintings are for sale and are priced between $850 and $5,500.
