Michael A. Butler is a native New Yorker and self-taught regional artist who focuses upon the hidden worlds of the historical and mythological. Many of his paintings reflects the unspoken history of this locality with specific reference to the African-American and Native-American influences. The deep jewel tones frequently represented in Butler’s work are reminiscent of those seen in the paintings of Henri Rousseau and the early works of Romare Bearden, two artists whom Butler admires. Another artistic influence is Aaron Douglass, whose geometric paintings provide inspiration. Butler has a Master’s degree in Public Administration and had his own gallery at one time. He is a former president of a local historical society. While also having exhibited in Massachusetts, Manhattan, Brooklyn, NY and Nassau County, he exhibits mainly on the East End of Long Island. Butler has had one-man shows at Gallery Merz, Headley Studio, Paradise Restaurant and the Eastville Community Historical Society, all located in Sag Harbor, NY.
