BUTTON, John

1966 - ?

John Fanshawe Button, was born in Lowestoft, Suffolk in 1966, son of Major John Fanshawe Button (1916-2000) and his wife Peggy Irene Mabel née Howland (1927-2001), who married at Lowestoft in 1961. John grew up on the Suffolk coast and after studying Architecture in Brighton he worked for many years with exhibition design, interiors and illustration. Painting and drawing had always been of great interest but it wasn't until 2002 and moving to Sweden with his young family that John began painting and exhibiting more actively. In his paintings, he explores landscape and seascape through its patterns and textures, attempting to trigger a memory or a sense of place and ignoring conventional rules of perspective along the way. In his still-life studies, John tries to tease something extraordinary out of his everyday surroundings. John is currently represented by galleries in Sweden, England and U.S.A.
