RAIN­BOW OF COLOUR AND MOVE­MENT:

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Front Page -

Renowned Aus­tralian artist Daniel But­ter­worth is pic­tured with a large mu­ral he is paint­ing on the façade of Belinda Eck­er­mann’s Turbo Gallery in Rain­bow. But­ter­worth has his AFL Se­ries on ex­hi­bi­tion at the gallery from July 6 to Au­gust 4. Mrs Eck­er­mann said she had re­mem­bered But­ter­worth from univer­sity and, while ad­mir­ing his work, had made con­tact through so­cial me­dia. “It’s great to be able to show­case how art and sport can mix. I said to Dan as a joke one day that I had a big wall out the front that needed a mu­ral. We made a deal and now he’s paint­ing my boys,” she said. The mu­ral fea­tures Jamie and Dustin Eck­er­mann in ac­tion for Jeparit-rain­bow foot­ball team. But­ter­worth’s ex­hi­bi­tion taps into his de­sire to cap­ture the speed and move­ment so the play­ers ap­pear to ‘al­most run on the sur­face’.
