Agathe Bouton is a French artist. She moved to Philadelphia two years ago, and is now based in Wynnewood PA. She works mainly in various forms of engraving, but also in painting and collage. Habitat and Urban Matter: Monotype Prints and Collage at 3rd Street Gallery is Bouton's first solo show in the US.
Bouton is inspired by the urbanism of Philadelphia. Her current work celebrates the totality of the cityscape, both the obvious beauty of its grand facades as well as the beauty found in its imperfections, such as broken windows and demolished structures. She also goes beyond brick and mortar considerations to contemplate the human element. Bouton states "These artworks are intended to evoke reflections on the lives lived within these spaces, and in finding beauty, making beauty, in the urbanism that surrounds us."
