Peter Buchman "Just Another Thing Hanging over Your Head", 2017

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Contemporary artist Peter Buchman's "Just another thing hanging over your head" is made of enamel, house paint and plaster on wood. 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 a larger "Just another thing hanging over your head" appeared in Hamptons Cottages and Gardens magazine and were also blogged around the world over 50,000 times (Image 4). Additional sizes and frame available upon request.

American artist Peter Buchman has BFA in Illustration from The Rhode Island School of Design and did a Sculpture Residency at The School of Visual Arts in New York.
