Hommage à Bernard Buffet

Hommage à Bernard Buffet:


Black Ink on A2 Paper (42.0 x 59.4cm).

I once viewed a Bernard Buffet painting on show at a private gallery. I don’t recall the name of the painting, but the expression of a lover’s hug was vivid, captured in striking black oils, giving an instantaneous angst-ridden edge to the pose. I have adopted the riddle here, but in ink and with more focus on the idea of love’s separation, which was a personal experience at the time, having recently abandoned the idea of lasting romance.
