Derrick Buisch - Artificial Horizon
18. April 2008 - 30. April 2008
Derrick Buisch is an American painter, art professor, curator, art-project manager and musician. He is also an internationally exhibited artist that takes inspiration from the everyday- like signage, graffiti, tattoos, graphic design from old LPs, comics, and an eclectic range of printed matter. His extensive experience in the independent music scene – particularly with Washington, D.C. hard-core 20 years ago, shaped his proactive approach to art making and his incessant commitment to promoting communal art projects.

Recently his works have employed bright industrial colors combined with fragmented letterforms and abstract symbols. These works are intended to be evocative, elusive, and visually resonant.
Derrick Buisch received his BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute of Art in 1989, and his MFA from the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis in 1996. He attended the Skowhegan residency of art in 1995, and was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Fellowship in 2000. Buisch has taught in the Department of Art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison since 1997. He has received a number of research grants and worked on interdisciplinary projects during his tenure in Madison. Buisch’s paintings, drawings and prints, have been exhibited nationally and internationally. Buisch has just co-currated an exhibition titled “Workbooks” on view in the Library Special Collections Gallery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
