JACKSON, Tenn. – Sept. 27, 2001– The Art Department at Union University will host an exhibit by artist Kent Butler, Thursday, Oct. 4, through Monday, Nov. 5, in the Art Gallery located in the Penick Academic Complex.
The solo exhibit is titled “Exclusion and Embrace.".
Butler is a Los Angeles-based artist who works in a variety of mediums such as video installation, performance and photography. He has had both solo and group exhibitions throughout the country. He recently had a solo exhibition in Florence, Italy, titled “My Body is not My Own.”
He describes his work as a self-examination of his soul.
“It both represents and sometimes is my process of ritual and spiritual experience,” said Butler. “It is a metaphor for the eternal quality of my spiritual body and the ephemeral quality of my physical body, and for how these coexist with one another.”
Butler received his bachelor of science degree from Biola University in La Mirada, Calif., where he is a professor of art and received his master's of fine arts degree from California State University in Fullerton, Calif. He is also a professor of art at Azusa Pacific University.
