Bruce Buchanan is a realist landscape painter. His work focuses on both the natural landscape and the man-made landscape, often combining the important elements of both to create the final work. He seeks to lead the viewer into a dimension that transcends the notion of a specific “place”. This takes us beyond the realm of isolated physical experience and into another place altogether. Often there is a degree of abstraction in his works – “slices” of seascape, landscape or places than can be seen in a different light. Industrial buildings, sheds, grain silos and structures also feature, often for their sculptural qualities which turn into studies of form and shadow or introduce a subtle focal point.
He chooses to work in watercolour for its translucency and its infinite tonal possibilities. Having been an architect for most of his working life, he has a natural understanding of structure, perspective, form, scale and detail which underlines his meticulous application of the medium.
