Bisa Butler: The Storm, the Whirlwind and the Earthquake

Claire Oliver Gallery is pleased to announce the debut solo exhibition by artist Bisa Butler, The Storm, the Whirlwind and the Earthquake. Butler’s large scale works are textile portraits of people of color fabricated from layers of brightly colored fabrics with a multiplicity of meanings. Butler’s composite characters are inspired by historical photography; the resulting images are rendered life-sized and vibrantly colored with viewers often engaging the subjects eye to eye.
