"Lewis Buttery creates contemplative abstract canvases that - taking cues from the dynamic aesthetics of street art - are enlivened with expressionism. As deep blues rupture composition-dominating pinks, harmonious and contrasting colour palettes are used here to symbolise varying mental states and emotions. Having worked extensively with charities to deliver workshops within schools, youth clubs, and prisons, Buttery’s practice investigates the complex intersection of mental health, class and institutional social hierarchy."
