Wellspring Paintings by William Butler

– Visions of Light, Peace & Hope

Wellspring is a series of 14 paintings which reveal a luminous, colorful wellspring of light, peace, and hope. Brilliant colors, bold strokes, and expressive textures flourish throughout the Wellspring series of paintings.

Wellspring is composed of multiple layers of vibrant color depicted as ascending and descending color fields which create dynamic movement. The visual contrast between organic contrasting complimentary colors express a simultaneous tension and harmony between the seen and perceived artistic expression of hope.

Wellspring depicts the ever-changing landscapes of life. Even in the most barren seasons, wellsprings transform dry desolate places into beautiful vistas that nourish the soul.

– William Butler

Haiku written upon the completion of the Wellspring artwork:
In creation’s light,
life, healing, and peace burst forth,
destroying darkness.

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper, and instead of briers the myrtle will grow. This will be for the Lord’s renown, for an everlasting sign, that will endure forever.”

Isa. 55:9-13

Abstract Impressionist Paintings by William Butler

– Visions of Peace & Restoration

Soul Garden is a series of 16 abstract impressionist paintings created during the most challenging time for me (and for my wife and for our sons). The hardship and suffering experienced by so many during the past many months are real and have been difficult for us and for so many in our city, nation, and especially our world.

To create this series of paintings, I needed to free myself from sadness, distraction, and despair. As my soul longs for peace, healing, and reconciliation, I contended for this peace and restoration as I worked to create this artwork. I dug deep into my soul to rise above the challenges of the day to work to complete this purposeful series of art.

Soul Garden depicts the fragile yet resilient human condition, an ever-changing landscape. Even when it is the dark of winter and even when the storms arise, there is the hope of knowing spring is near and the barren land will be transformed into beautiful vistas that nourish every season of the soul.

When I spend time in nature steeped in the stillness of creation, I am refreshed by the wellspring of the Creator. I am reminded of important words: to be still and know God is in control. God brings beautiful gardens of our soul to light.

Even in the difficult times, I have faith in the everlasting promise of what is to come. With eyes of hope, I strive to see beauty instead of ashes.

– William Butler

The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Isa. 58:11

REVELATION LOVE – Figurative Typographic Paintings by William Butler

– Symbolic icons of hope & love

Revelation Love is a series of 12 paintings which depict beauty, strength, hope, and love. These paintings are composed of multiple layers of texture and color which reveal both typographic and figurative imagery reflecting the everlasting revelatory love of God.

Vibrant colors, rich textures, semi-translucent image layers, and contrasting surface finishings express a simultaneous tension and harmony between the visual relationships found in each painting.

LOVE is repeated numerous times to creatively communicate the Gospel. God (LOVE) came into the world in human form. Jesus (LOVE) willingly gave His life to free us from sin and for our salvation, and then He returned to Heaven. He (LOVE) will return again to bring restoration. In Rev. 5:5-6, Jesus is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the root of David. He will return in Glory to bring love and justice into the world.

Love triumphs over all! Immersing the word LOVE with the face of a Lion is an endearing expression of God’s great love, power and protection that overcomes every challenge in the world and brings Hope to all.

ASCENSION – Geometric Abstract Paintings by William Butler

– A visual metaphor of personal & collective journeys

Each person has a unique life journey on this earth. Each individual path intertwines and intersects with many others creating vast collective experiences that shape and define each of us. The Ascension exhibit conveys a sense of illuminated movement through the geometric emergence of ascending color, value, line, shape, pattern, and scale.

Ascension is a visual expression of the contrasting steps which shape and guide our life journey. As people, an inner desire exists to live fuller, richer lives where we are steadily climbing higher in our understanding, faith, and peace. However, as we live in a fallen world, the tragedies happen, the struggles exist, and the hurts are real. At these times, we feel as if we are descending, as if we cannot view or reach the next step up. Yet God is with us always – whether we are stepping steadily up life’s journey or whether we are moving back a step and need His presence even more.  At times, it is the step down (valley) experiences where we receive the wisdom, healing, and redemption needed to help us gracefully ascend even higher and steadier in the next stage of our lives. Scripture which inspired the exhibit is Proverbs 4.

Ascension is a collection of 10 large format, layered, multi-dimensional, geometric abstract paintings. Vibrant colors, rich textures, and fluid as well as contrasting lines throughout the Ascension paintings reveal the varied array of the steps in our lives.
