Jason R. Butcher is an artist based in Atlanta, Georgia, interested in exploring drawing, animation, and sound. Born in Ohio, he grew up in various places on both coasts as well as spending some time in the Midwest. After relocating to Georgia in the late 90s, he obtained his BFA in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking at Georgia State University in 2004, and subsequently a Master's degree in Electronic Art from The University of Cincinnati - DAAP in 2006. Upon returning to Atlanta, he became a member of drawing collective Golden Blizzard and began to develop an understanding of electronics (past & present). Work designing museum interactive and electronics informed a few large collaborative installations for the Le Flash events of 2008 and 2009, as well as more recent exhibits with electronic displays of the sound and/or video variety, and improvisational performances with electronic instruments. 2012 has been a productive year - marked by branching out into electronic circuit design and fabrication for custom synthesizer devices, sound design and engineering for Anya Liftig's recent Flux Projects performance, and large scale drawings. Mr. Butcher currently lives in Decatur with his wife Rebecca, son Felix, and two ill-behaved cats, and is a professor of Animation at the Art Institute of Atlanta - Decatur.
