Peter Buchman "Just another thing hanging", 2014
Contemporary artist Peter Buchman’s “Just another thing hanging over your head.” is made of enamel, house paint, plaster on wood and a gold leaf frame. Peter Buchman’s sketchbooks are filled with his writings, his notes, his verbal outbursts, his jokes, his lists of words, ideas, banter – his Rap. After discussing many ideas and word musings with interior designer Tamara Magel for a painting as a focal point for a show house bedroom – Peter and Tamara picked this lyrical phrase. People think it’s a print because they can’t see or imagine the texture of this painting. Peter spent hours building up the surface of the wood canvas until he was happy with the plaster-putty texture. Then he sanded the work down with his power tools until he saw a balance that was receptive for paint, and his words. It was a very personal process for him. Maybe that’s why so many people have been drawn to this large piece of work by him which is opposite of a Jackson Pollock visually, yet almost as compelling. Tamara Magel Interiors’ show house photos of “Just another thing hanging over you head.” appeared in Hamptons Cottages & Gardens magazine. Signed on verso and ships directly from the artist’s studio.
