Jesse Butcher: Wet Affairs

@ Swimming Pool Project Space

2858 W Montrose, Chicago, IL 60618

Opening Saturday, December 11th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Saturday, January 9th

Butcher uses text-based iconography as an analysis of complex American ideas about good and evil. He presents the land’s love for antagonists within his own personal mythology. He references the psychological hinterland at the core of an ultimately fear-based culture and reflects about a mean spirited society where America becomes either/or, a potential Promised Land on Earth. These Big Symbols exemplify a mentality of every man for himself in blockbuster rhetoric where grey does not exist. This results in an anarchy of Libertarianism proving that one is either black or white/damned or saved.
