<p>Mr. Butzer’s paintings feature a rotating cast of cartoon characters that simultaneously manage to <br />
be cuddly cute and forbodingly morbid. Most look like amorphous, amoeba, blob buddies, some <br />
sinister and others totally naïve. On the back of one of the paintings (all officially untitled) an <br />
inscriptions which reads, “Anfung und Ende von Donald Duck, erste und letzte Bild,” perhaps <br />
gives some clue to a subject matter or story within the dense and complicated composition. For <br />
the image could very well depict both the beginning and end of one Mr. Donald Duck, presenting <br />
itself as a record of the obliterated animated celebrity’s remains; orange bills and disembodied <br />
eyeballs abound. </p>

André Butzer
Andre Butzer’s work explores the romanticism of painting from a contemporary stand point. Inspired equally from popular culture and art history’s greats – from Ensor to De Kooning and Guston – Butzer’s wildly rendered canvases exude a frenetic creative energy redolent of the artistic myths of passion, power, and ‘genius’. Executed on monumental scale, Butzer’s paintings are a triumph of style over substance as his highly articulate techniques and compositions regurgitate graffiti scribbles and cartoon forms…Saatchi Gallery
