Deborah Butterfield: Years of the Horse
Thursday Feb 27 04:00 PM
Doris Duke Theatre
About the Lecture:
Spend some time with Deborah Butterfield's horse sculptures at Spalding House and on the museum's front lawn on Beretania Street, then come to this lecture for a total art experience.
Deborah Butterfield's sculptural forms are based on her unique subject, horses. With extraordinary focus and conviction, Butterfield works independently of the tides of trends and art movements. She has become a master of three-dimensional images of horses, building her sculptures with no sketches or maquettes, working directly with wood pieces or found metal scraps.
Butterfield, who divides her time between Montana, Hawai‘i Island, and Walla Walla, Washington, will talk about her process and work.
In Honolulu, her sculptures can be found in the Spalding House sculpture gardens, at the First Hawaiian Center, and, temporarily, on the lawn of the Honolulu Museum of Art on Beretania Street.
