The Great Staycation by Tom Butler
Tom’s new collection could not be more perfectly timed – a pair of luminous coastal scenes that portray the English Riviera in all its picturesque charm; a place where the sun shines, the sea shimmers and if you look closely you will see that everyone is “having a whale of a time”. Tom is one of the most innovative, imaginative and accomplished artists working in the UK, and drawing on a wide variety of media his witty and creative collages are literally hot off the press! While his images may be charming and whimsical, they are also highly sophisticated and complex in their concept and creation. The multi-layered composition blends the transparent and the solid allowing him to interpret a familiar scene in a unique and sometime unexpected way.
