ARTIST’S RECEPTION: APRIL 8, 2017, 6-9PM
Charlie James Gallery is delighted to present Consumption, our first solo show with Los Angeles-based artist Nancy Buchanan.
Intending to focus on painting at UC Irvine, Nancy Buchanan’s (b. 1946, Boston, MA) conceptual bent started when she was a student of Robert Irwin. Absorbing his lesson that art is an experience rather than an object, she extended her production to unusual materials (shredded newspaper, human hair) and methods of presentation. Buchanan works across drawing, performance, video, collage, mixed media work and installation. As she embraces the notion that art should evidence the time of its making, Buchanan’s pieces often addresses social and political issues.
