Doug Butler – Stone Carver

Doug Butler - Carving - Copy

Doug has been carving stone since 1998 and has worked with marble, limestone, alabaster, opal stone, cobalt, serpentine, butter jade, granite, limestone, wonderstone and sandstone. “My abstract works often evolve during the carving of a stone and I prefer that people viewing them form their own opinions, as to what I am trying to accomplish with each piece. Many people tell me they see different things in my works and this is exactly what I want to occur.”

Doug is particularly interested in the interactions of positive and negative space. His work has been exhibited and sold at Collingwood and Toronto art shows and galleries since the mid-nineties.  A growing number of his sculptures can be found in collections throughout Canada and the United States.
