Patrick Butler is part of the eclectic mix of painters, poets, musicians and artists that make up the rich art community of the Medway towns in Kent.


In his new collection, Patrick explores the complexities of what makes us human and individual. Drawing on Gestalt effects, his paintings explore the female form, and although confrontational, are not intended to shock. They address the confrontation of self, the perception of self and the secrets that lie beneath.

Fascinated by secrets and with the realisation that realism and naturalism can be very misleading, Secrets! narrates a series of experiences that Patrick has bought to life through a complex use of layering paint with Sgraffito, amongst other impactful techniques. 

A private viewing with Patrick Butler will take place on Thursday 12th May, 6-8pm at The Strand Gallery, London. The event will also feature an exclusive music set from up and coming young band Xylaroo, a new duo from Papua New Guineau enjoying rave reviews from the music press with their fresh dulcet harmonies. There are many synergies between Xylaroo and the Secrets collection, with the band’s unmistakably beautiful songs often dealing with a variety of complex and hidden issues.

To RSVP for the private viewing, please contact patrickbutlerart@westgatecomms.com
