Kathy Butterly: ColorForm

Edited and with text by Dan Nadel. Text by Rachel Teagle, Jenelle Porter.

Kathy Butterly: ColorForm

ColorForm is the first major monograph on the work of New York sculptor Kathy Butterly (born 1963). Encompassing 60 sculptures and 20 drawings from throughout Butterly’s career, all of which are reproduced here, it focuses mainly on the last ten years of her work.

Butterly is well known for her sculptures that challenge the conventions of ceramic tradition through oblique figurations of the body, with shapes that evoke mouths, feet and genitalia. Her work, which stands in historical dialogue with that of Ken Price, Viola Frey and Robert Arneson, engages with the politics of 20th-century femininity even as it leans ever closer to abstraction.

The works collected here chart the evolution of Butterly’s sensibilities and philosophical stance, tracking the development of her highly personal yet immediate and accessible ceramic language from explorations of the body to personhood and autobiography.


"Overboard" (2012) is reproduced from 'Kathy Butterly: ColorForm.'

Metaphysical immensity in 'Kathy Butterly: ColorForm'

Metaphysical immensity in 'Kathy Butterly: ColorForm'

How we love this new, clothbound monograph on the American sculptor and ceramicist Kathy Butterly. Featuring roughly 80 works, all under 16 inches around and made 1989–2019, with an emphasis on more recent work, it proves without a doubt that monumentality has nothing to do with size. Editor Dan Nadel writes, "A small object executed with curiosity and finesse can appear metaphysically immense, allowing a viewer to encounter its totality from all angles, inside and out. But the object must first have a near-human presence in space and pull the viewer in with recognizable or intriguing details." Heavy Head (2003), for example, measures just 3 3/8 x 6 x 3 3/4 inches. On Philip Guston's recent influence, Nadel quotes Butterly: "He painted his later representational imagery so that they feel alive: a shoe, a cigarette, a book. My desire is to get my works to a place where they have meaning, have presence and evoke the sense of being alive." continue to blog
