"...interestingly gaudy, exuberantly messy..." - Henry Lehmann of the Montréal Gazette
Valerie Butters is a young Canadian artist who has burst upon the art scene in Montreal, Toronto, and New York City.
Butters is fascinated by the subconscious and influenced by surrealism and expressionism. She states that as well as having studied under some prominent contemporary artists such as: Jennifer Hornyak, Marilyn Rubenstein, Seymour Segel, Shirley Kats, Philip Iverson, Sophie Jodoin, and Jacques Clement, she was also inspired by the revolutionary Canadian artist, Paul-Emile Borduas.
Borduas created a very different vision of life and art with his spontaneous expressions of emotions, feelings, and sensations. While his work was considered radical at the time, Butter’s work is seen as joyful explosions of colour and emotion.
Her evolution and exuberant exploration of colour and composition make her still-lifes and landscapes flamboyant and exciting.
