December 2018: Black & White Abstract Expressionist Oil Painting with Charcoal

2018

About

Gestural abstract expressionist oil painting on canvas in black and white, with details of forest green and purple Painted by Hudson Valley based artist, Gary Buckendorf, in 2019 48 x 60 inches, with dark green painted sides, ready to hang as is Oil paint with black charcoal detail on canvas, mounted on wood panel Wire backing for secure installation Signed, verso An elegant handling of charcoal merged with the artist’s freedom of motion culminate into hauntingly beautiful abstractions that Buckendorf describes as “following a lead of accidents.” He further explains “…with repetition, over the years, an internal process has emerged. It continues to evolve and now I feel engaged in something that is, in some way, part of nature." This series of large oil paintings follows this aesthetic practice while introducing subtle color into his largely monochrome repertoire. This abstract expressionist painting features gestural strokes of white paint over a solid black background, while intriguing pops of forest green and royal purple reveal themselves behind spontaneous drips of oil paint and charcoal markings. The painting has dark green painted sides so additional framing is optional. There is wire backing for secure installation. Artist Statement: These pictures are often dour and spooky. This can be partly due to the properties of charcoal, or my sensibility and mental state and maybe because of an encroaching general wariness. But I try to make all my pictures beautiful. Beauty as a goal helps me to make sense of things and provides a track to run on so this explorer does not get lost. Also, a well-made picture is necessarily beautiful. I want the pictures to be grave and serious, but it doesn’t always turn out that way. Sometimes I may start a black heavy line with a sense of grief and anger. Off it runs - thick and sinister - arching across the page when it bumps into another line and suddenly becomes a joke. Not my joke - just a joke. Now sometimes I keep those. In this way, I believe I’m collaborating with mysteries the accidents are part of. Making these pictures has reiterated for me something that I have heard before: when one begins a project, fear must be dealt with at the outset. I like some accidents more than others as the images take shape. To remove one accident in the hope of something better requires courage. A small amount- something about the size of what I have. This is probably good practice. I may need more later.
