Artist Ambreen Butt’s works seem take her craft and process to the extreme, and her latest pieces take on political extremism as a subject. Her portrayal isn’t sensational or single-minded, but systematic: One extreme can’t exist without its polar opposite, neither can exist without everything in between; and her works engage us with a spectrum of ideas and viewpoints.
Her Carroll and Sons solo exhibition, “Ambreen Butt: Beyond the Ideas Of Rightness Or Wrongness There Is A Field; I’ll Meet You There” [Reception, Nov. 2; on view through Dec. 22] is aptly named.
Read my short essay about Butt’s works and processes in the latest issue of Art New England.
