BFFs robert bruce scott and Landry Butler will present their new collective collaboration, Two Met a Four and They Had Six. This collection of collage and found art was created over several years while watching zombie movies, drinking rum, painting on the floor and in the back yard.

Butler and scott have a mutual love of Dada, the early 20th century avant garde movement, which rejected the logic, reason, and aesthetics of modern capitalist society.

In 1997 robert bruce moved to Nashville, Tenn. and began working with the Visual Arts Alliance of Nashville and the Tennessee Art Center at Madison.  He exhibited regularly with the Plowhaus Artist’s Co-op Gallery and once again, at various places and juried shows around the Southeast.

robert bruce currently lives in Old Hickory, Tenn.  He works where and when he can. He had horrendous artist’s block but is back at it now. He is very forgetful, so please reintroduce yourself and forgive him his faulty memory.

Landry Butler, is an experimental visual and performance artist living in Nashville, Tenn. A keen observer of life, his genre-crossing work deals with themes of change, personal growth and self-actualization in a society that encourages alienation, fear and self-consumption.

From his stage-fright laden debut at Untitled’s Jungle Show to performances at Nashville’s Belcourt Theatre and Burning Banjos, Butler has amused and confused audiences for decades with his brand of spoken word, music and visual art.

His critical and humorous observations of life in the Western world have generated favorable comparisons to Jandek, Dr. Eugene Chadbourne and They Might Be Giants, earning him dozens of fans on the Internet and off.
