Butch Anthony: Vita Post Mortum

The Mary S. and David C. Corbin Foundation Gallery
November 6, 2014 - January 25, 2015

Butch Anthony, an artist not easily categorized, collects bizarre objects and transforms them into strangely beautiful art. Butch Anthony resides on his family’s 80-acre property, a folk-art compound in Seale, Alabama, where his artistic career began in the 1990s. Using various media and techniques, Anthony alters found objects to craft them into one-of-a-kind masterpieces. His specific genre of work is called “Intertwangelism”—an ism of his own creation—stating: “If I make up my own ‘ism,’ no one can say anything or tell me I’m doing it wrong.” Exhibition list image: Butch Anthony, Swoonia Pungia Morta, 2013, Intertwangleized photograph, Swoon paper cut outs, 20 x 16 in., Private Collection This exhibition is organized by the Akron Art Museum and generously supported by The Mary S. and David C.
