art blog - Saturno Buttò - empty kingdom

If by some miracle chance that EMPTY KINGDOM unchained me from my desk and allowed me to travel over seas, I would undoubtedly go straight to Amsterdam to check out Saturno Buttò’s work in person at the upcoming LIAISON Amsterdam Show in April. It wasn’t planned for his EK spotlight to be shown on a Sunday…it just happened to be coincidence that it did, and it seems only right. In many of Buttò’s paintings, fetish objects and practices are often placed in a religious context that goes beyond just merely wanting to achieve a shock effect.

Buttò’s paintings are definitely something else as he often depicts S&M and bondage as part of the divine, as well as presenting provocative prostitutes as saints themselves. I’m telling you…this show is going to be something!
