As in a Mirror Dimly


August 4 - 31, 2012

"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.
