EAST MEETS WEST IN COLOR “…working to maintain a spontaneous flow—Buchman doesn’t like art to be overworked or laborious—he strives for universality and immediacy…”
Bill’s abstract and figurative images touch upon something essential. A lifelong student of Eastern and Western metaphysical thought, Bill’s paintings and drawings combine Dadaist poetics with the expressiveness of the brush gesture to create compositions and figures which offer a paradox.
