Local Raleigh artist, Luke Miller Buchanan, creates paintings "focused on our man-made world." I love how he describes his work as,
"Stairways, telephone poles, railroad tracks, apartment buildings and factories are all prominent in my work. These are places and things that have been seen or used by thousands of people, each one of them an individual with unique experiences. These experiences, varied as they may be, share the same space. Therefore a street corner may be where one person met the love of their life, and also where someone lost theirs. A room in an apartment may be both where a child was conceived and where a young man died. These events are inseparable from the space, to the individual that experienced them."
The washed colors and disjointed perspectives add even more depth to the stories of these places. Doesn't he interpret and illustrate a place beautifully?
