Jason R. Butcher at Beep Beep

July 26th, 2012 Jason Parker Posted in Drawing, Event No Comments »

“As in a Mirror, Dimly” features a set of all new drawings by Atlanta artist Jason R. Butcher.

His new work focuses on imagery related to what Butcher describes as “a film I will never finish”. Each drawing gives a voyeur’s perspective from someone working on a surreal dream-like set, with each scene laid out and lit exactly as the artist would do in order to shoot the film.

The drawings depict a series of everyday occurrences which, while appearing in sequence, contain no narrative structure. Originating as story-boards, the drawings serve as a documentation of ideas that could become a film but since that film will never be finished, the drawings in turn become their own artistic statement.

Through Aug. 31.
