Around the Whirled is a collection of nature-based works by Chicago-based artist and educator Kaye Buchman. This grouping of large-scale pen and ink drawings, mixed-media paintings, and thematic artist books represents spaces, places, forms and concepts related to the expressive and destructive energies found in our embattled ecosystems. These works were developed through years of sketchbook research, the study of fairytales and vintage illustration, and an ongoing dedication to the vast and unrestrained world of visual discovery.
Kaye Buchman received her BFA in Printmaking from Illinois State University and her MFA in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
