david porteous-butler’s work
reveals an honest and direct affinity
with his subject that is driven
by his love of the natural world.
he has a passion for the vitality
of the landscape and changing light
around him. suffolk provides much
inspiration and the english countryside
is a true love, although he has
also worked extensively in southern
europe including time in france
and italy. working with a limited
palette, he is always faithful to
the truth in what he sees.
his portraits reveal the same integrity,
and his sculptures, whether in bronze,
stone or marble, are faithful to
his belief in a natural and simple
beauty in all things.
david studied in london under the
late sir kyffin williams ra and
anthony green ra before being offered
a place at the royal college of
art. david is truly a protégé
of, and remained close to, sir kyffin
williams ra, sharing his fundamental
belief that drawing and draughtsmanship
are a vital part of the artist’s
david’s work is in collections in the uk, france, italy and the usa and regularly exhibits in and around suffolk.
