Jim Budde Art Show

Hello Friends,

It is my great honor to have the Lottie Rose Gallery hosts my mentor and good friend Jim Budde this coming November 12th.

Jim Budde is known both for his politically charged satirical pieces about contemporary issues and personae, and sculptural teapots that combine expressionistic human and animal imagery.  He draws from popular culture and classic literature as well as historical art references.  In each of these contexts the work often mingles imagery that carries diverse associations about the human condition creating a sculptural collage with a poetic narrative.  He enjoys working with the prerequisite boundaries and technical obstacles his references impose on the way in which he approaches each new work.

The inherent dialogical nature of Budde’s work is strongest when referencing a current event, well-known personality, cultural icon or literary reference. Conversely, when Budde works from more imaginative resources, the pieces begin to emphasize form and a feeling of entity over direct subject matter. Both approaches highlight the strong voice and striking technique that has become equally signature to Budde’s work.

I hope to see you all here for this amazing art show!!
