I am an artist and writer living in Brooklyn. Currently, I’m in my third and final year pursuing an MFA/MS Art History at the Pratt Institute.

To get in touch, feel free to email me at katemurphybutler@gmail.com

I sell my work on etsy.

My work takes many forms, but the core of what I do is best expressed (for now) by French phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty:

“Things have an internal equivalent in me; they arouse in me a carnal formula of their presence. Why should’t these correspondences in turn give rise to a tracing rendered visible again, in which the eyes of others could find an underlying motif to sustain their introspection of the world?”

— Merleau Ponty, Eye and Mind
