Debra Buchanan

Debra Buchanan's keen observational skill, attention to detail and compositional acumen infuses her work with aesthetic ingenuity. Exquisite rendering is the hallmark of this accomplished artist. Whether in oils, pastels, graphite, or charcoal, her technique is extraordinary. She ardently carries on the still life and portrait traditions established by seventeenth century masters, imbuing her own modern spin into her work. She carries her work into the contemporary realm of design sensibility while mastering old world techniques.

Buchanan's works have been exhibited in numerous galleries such as The Toledo Museum of Art's Collector's Corner as well as being awarded a plethora of awards nationally, regionally, and locally including Best of Show, Roots of Diversity Multicultural Exhibition, Toledo, Ohio, Third Award, Purchase Award, and the Molly Morpeth Award for Painting at the Toledo Area Artist Exhibition, Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo, Ohio, and First Place Works on Paper, 71st Annual Ohio Exhibition, Zanesville Museum of Art, Zanesville, Ohio to mention a few.

Debra Buchanan earned a Master's in Education degree from Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio and a B.F.A. degree from Columbus College of Art and Design, Columbus, Ohio. She studied in Italy for a summer with renown painter Patrick Betaudier.

Publications
The City Paper, September 6-12, 2001: Matthew Weiderhold, "While many artists concentrate on one medium, Buchanan explores many tackling new forms until she conquers them. Once comfortable with her tools, Buchanan demonstrates bravado, playing light against shadow much like Kathe Kollwitz or photographer Margaret Bourke-White. Her creativity seems to ooze from her body."

The Weekly, 3-30-00: Rebecca Golden, "Debra Buchanan has two works in the show. "Red Plaid Shirt," a pastel portrait depicting a man in a red plaid shirt. His piercing brown eyes gaze warily at the world through black-rimmed glasses. His dark hair is graying in a way people refer to as distinguished. Through the red plaid of the title shirt is perfectly rendered - indeed, the medium really lends itself to creating the texture of flannel - it seems as though this man would feel much more at home in a three-piece suit, complete with power tie. Something in his steady gaze conveys an authority belied by his attire. The portrait compels attention and is worthy of a second glance."

The Toledo Blade, 8-17-00: Rebekah Scott, "Soft textural decorative handmade paper creations. They are neat, beaded and threaded, shadow-boxed and utterly professional."

20 North Gallery 2000: Peggy Grant, Art Director, "Debra Buchanan can be counted on to go far in the realist realm of painting. She holds an impressive record of awards and commissions for such a young artist. Her hauntingly beautiful black and white charcoal drawings are simply stunning."
