DESCRIPTION

The painter’s primary concern is not that lofty or expressive something, a motif or a formulation by the hand of a particular, distinctive artist. What is crucial for him is the double reference to endlessly produced and published reproductions by digital cameras and cellular telephones. All Buechler’s motifs are taken from the digital world. The artist chooses these images from the innumerable possibilities and subject them to a transformation, using an exacting and time-consuming painting process that wrests their arbitrary, everyday quality from them.
