as promised.. a video of the flesh series.. in collaboration with the wonderful john douglas
skin, flesh, video, butchart, butch curran, human condition
such a powerful video butchart, a compelling combination of audio an art! these images are quite spooky, they seem to take on more and more of a human form as they evolve and make me think of all of the painful, tormented, damaged and tortorous emotions in life becoming unearthed and taking shape on the surface. Brilliant work! xox
i like how you think jenn.. and thanks so much… i have to give most of the credit to john d.. if you don’t follow him you should… the man is a genius and a wonderful hearted man as well…….
…definitely takes you away from reality and into another world…
high praise from a master of doing just that… so thank you very much paul…..b
So incredible I’m not sure what to say – if I could feel the earth’s pain in your images, I have to take it into my soul now. Such a powerful metaphor for all of life, dear heart, for human suffering, the injuries we do ourselves and each other and the pain we can cause by not even noticing what should be obvious. One of the most moving things I’ve ever seen, to tell the truth. Deeply moving. Much love darling man – it’s wonderful to see you come back with such power!!
you give me wings sweetheart… and i have to give most of the credit to john… he took my images and gave them even more of a voice… thank you for always being there/here……… where’s that letter?
The video rox! Nice work Butch. I particularly like these in this media

Normally i wouldn’t take the time to see a vid like this to the end.. but because of your other mostly written pieces i dediced to do just that and let the emotions touch me.. Pain, sorrow and even feeling sick to the stomach is what happened..until i saw the face which brought me the “WHY” why you do this upon me.. not the question of one but more like it belongs to many.. and a plead to do otherwise.. thank you for showing me different forms of ART too butch x
why indeed dear lizzie… thank you for sticking with this .. i know your kind heart probably skipped a beat or two……. much love…..b
Excellent collaborative work!! Amazing photography and the ambient music reminds me of Steve Roach!! I feel like I’m looking at close-ups of some alien flesh, that has been discarded. An alien crash victim…or the flesh of the earth itself in torment.Extraordinary…..b and John!! :)
wow keith.. thanks for the great comment… not familiar with steve roach.. i will have to check him out….. hope you are well…..b
