About

'Imagine' is an original mixed media painting on rough cut aluminium by American artist and appraiser Kelly Butenhoff. In the image, Butenhoff shows a yellow figure against a blue background; however, the painting is even more about the material of paint and metal as it is about figuration. Recalling the figurative paintings of Abstract Expressionist Willem de Kooning, the work is constructed of built-up textured layers, their rough surface mirrored by the irregular border of the aluminium sheet support. 34 x 23 inches Artist's labels on reverse Unframed, ready to hang Framing options available Overall good condition; some lifting of paint around edges; paint loss upper left After studying abroad, Kelly graduated from Carroll College , Waukesha , Wisconsin , with a BFA in Fine Art and Commercial Art. Her career in the art world began with the prestigious David Barnett Gallery in Wisconsin . Simultaneously exploring her own artistic accomplishments and gallery pursuits, eventually brought Kelly to Palm Beach Gardens , Florida , and Studio E Gallery in 2001 where she held the position of Gallery Director for eleven years while launching her endeavor of concierge fine art and appraisal services. Never one to rest on her laurels, Kelly appeased an interest in appraising by attending the School of Continuing and Professional Studies at NYU, completing the intensive Art Appraising and Connoisseurship Program in 2004. These studies and internships have included in-depth research and documentation of fine and decorative arts. Courses, workshops and seminars on fine art, decorative art, American silver 1800-1940, estate jewelry, 18th and 19th century furniture and IRS legal guidelines. Her training took place in such esteemed locations such as Sotheby’s, Doyle’s Auction House, Swann Auction Galleries, Hirschl & Adler, Beauvais Carpet, New York University and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Kelly is knowledgeable in all areas of art appraisal from the legal and ethical aspects to the IRS legal guidelines in valuation.
