Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi ( 20th Century): Broke Back, 2007. Silk screen print, singed and numbered (28/68) below, unframed.

Nick Butcher is best known in Chicago as a visual artist, particularly for the gorgeous screened posters he's made with his wife Nadine Nakanishi under the name Sonnenzimmer since 2006. Their artwork is marked by a charming sort of abstraction that mixes geometric shapes, text, and everyday objects into sparse collages, balancing precision with a decidedly homemade touch.

25 x 19 inches paper.

Acquired from the artist ca 2005; private collection, New England.


Excellent condition; paper was stored rolled.
