Luke Butler Bio

About The Artist

Luke Butler's work affectionately toys with popular heroic narratives. He paints the visible—great men falling, equipment failing, the story ending—in hopes of illuminating something less visible—anxiety, masculinity, mortality. The abiding regard he has for the seemingly disposable heroic figures of his youth leads Butler to conjure them within an enduring iconography of pathos. Luke Butler lives and works in San Francisco.
