Butterly / Pétursson
19 January–4 March
i8 Gallery is pleased to present Butterly / Pétursson, a two-person show featuring new work by American ceramicist Kathy Butterly and Icelandic painter Eggert Pétursson. The exhibition opens with a reception for the artists on Thursday, 19 January from 5-7pm and will be on view until 4 March.
Butterly and Pétursson are united in their deeply expressive bodies of work, as well as in their decades-long, rigorous dedication to their practices. Butterly and Pétursson’s shared exploration of depth and texture and their attention to detail result in energetic, viscerally powerful artworks. Both artists explore limits and capacities of colour through their technical mastery of glazes and paints: Butterly challenges the limits of ceramics, as Pétursson does a canvas.
