Featured in the Art Gallery - Peter G. Buchan
Chopstick Drip Painting
During the month of January, the Museum Gallery will feature the art of Peter Buchan. His work is based upon the Chopstick Drip Painting technique he developed about 12 years ago.
Harnessing the power of gravity, he drips oil-based enamel paint from chopsticks onto wood, a system of gravity and imperfection. He has chosen to use this (unruly) paint in an unconventional approach, creating mostly figurative works that push drip painting beyond its confines of abstract expressionism.
The synergy of paint & gravity has allowed him to create a hybrid art form that coalesces the seemingly contradictory worlds of Jackson Pollock and Bob Ross.
There will be a reception for Mr. Buchan on THURSDAY, January 12th from 4-6pm at the museum...
