Apropo Wisconsin / Derrick Buisch

Artist / Educator / 202c




Above: Three from his Circles series.

Professor Derick Buisch teaches and works in Madison, Wisconsin, the legendary left coast. Some insight here from the conclusion to his artist statement:

I believe in the importance of the reflective space provided by painting. I relish the slow time in both the making and the reading of the work. These paintings are a distilled chaos riddled with small incidences of uneasy hilarity, which creates a rigorous abstraction that is simultaneously evocative and elusive.

My work is inspired by the poetic potential of a new vocabulary of abstraction. The varied meanings and the material possibilities of pigment are fully explored. Future research will result with abstract paintings that will be resonant and unnerving.
