In constant conflict between eroticism and pain, transgression and ecstasy, Buttò’s precious wooden paintings “dissect the Western” religious iconography ‘s uncompromising and contradictory view of the body, exhibited on the one hand as an object of veneration, denied on the other in its value as pure erotic beauty. The result is a fascinating tension that highlights, above all, the human figure, which has always been at the center of the scene in his work.
