"Painting Gives Me a Place to Express Those Things I Can Not Put into Words."
Peter G. Buchan
The Birth of Suki
Since nearly all of Buchan's artworks are created freehand without any sketches (excluding commissions), he has to work as fast as the paint dribbles down the chopstick. This technique lends itself to creating portraits that capture the fluidity of human emotions. When people view Buchan's portraits, they usually love it or hate it, but there is rarely a middle ground because the artist likely evokes what we see in ourselves or others. Within seconds, gravity dances with the paint, transforming streams of color into portraits that may reflect the inner psyche of ourselves or someone we know.
This is how the Suki series began. During a night of painting, Buchan did not move quick enough, and the red paint streamed across wood, giving the femme fatale her signature red lips. Or depending on your perspective, perhaps this was a "Happy Accident," as Bob Ross would say. The piece was sold before the paint was dry and this spurred Buchan to create a series of similar Suki paintings. For some reason, Suki and her sisters have resonated with our customers, so we are wondering what Suki means to you. Drop us a line, so we can publish your response on our web site.
