Tom Butler

Tom Butler collection from Artworx Gallery

Tom creates his showstopping collages using a whole range of materials; in his imaginative hands a section of a crossword puzzle may become a block of flats, a wine bottle, or a church spire, and this unique approach adds intrigue, resonance and a touch of humour to every scene.

In 2004, Tom and his wife took a holiday in the South of France and visited a beautiful town called Uzès. He was mesmerised by the light, colour and textures - the bright awnings and parasols amongst weathered stone buildings, shuttered facades and crumbling masonry and 'les publicités anciennes' - huge, faded adverts from bygone days that used to be hand painted onto the sides of buildings.
