K.J. (Jack) Butler

Jack Butler currently lives and works in Hamilton, Ontario. His hybrid practice uses the means and methods of visual art to produce research in two domains - medical science and collaborations with Inuit artists (the current project, Art & Cold Cash). With degrees in visual art and philosophy, Butler exhibits internationally with work in public and private collections including the National Gallery of Canada.

"I draw. Observing my art career over the last forty five years of drawing, I have come to recognize that I am developing a core trajectory that focuses on sex and sexuality; the aesthetic, sensuous and even scientific experience of being sexual. My work ranges from my current interest in Somatechnics (theories and practices of alternative sex-gender embodiment) to early and on-going trans-disciplinary art/bio-medical research projects in genital embryogenesis (sexual differentiation in the human embryo) which art-based research is bringing me into collaborative work in trans-gender and intersex communities."
