Beverly Buchanan – “Global Perspective on the Creative Vernacular of the Rural South”
Beverly Buchanan is an African-American artist whose works include painting and sculpture. Buchanan is noted for her exploration of Southern vernacular architecture through her art.
“My work is about response and memory. It is a process of creating objects that relate to the physical world through perception rather than reproduction. Remembering the look and feel of structures has long been a strong focus in my drawings and sculptures – the house and its yard and the road behind and across. Capturing the essence and something of the look and feel of now versus then is not easy.” – Beverly Buchanan
