Private Lecture April 16
Butch Anthony is a multimedia artist living and working in Searle, Alabama. His artistic creations are largely formed of mixed media: objects he has found, collected, transformed, and assembled. He uses the term "intertwangled" for his type of art as he mixes so many objects, drawn forms, and subject matter together.
Butch built his house and uses his barn (The Museum of Wonder) as a venue filled with collections varying from teeth and bones to cigar boxes and license plates. Butch's work defies categorization and creates a humorous commentary on modern life. Themes of death, work and relationships form the core of his approach to crafting his bizarre creations. His work is in the permanent collection of the Columbus Museum, Columbus, Georgia. He recently had a solo exhibition of his work at the museum in Talladega, Alabama.
