In this new body of work, “Inside Passage,” the artist, with his unique blend of realism and abstraction continues to offer the viewer the mystery of the story each painting tells. ¬†Buller is well recognized for his ability to create paintings with a certain intensity of feeling, reconnecting us to our own sensory intelligences and human experiences. His process of painting, applying paint, removing paint and allowing each piece to guide him, becomes a search for a passageway into a particular state of mind. In this exhibition the artist continues to paint intuitively while exploring his interest in the Inside Passage and the ever changing and timeless relationships of the people, the land and the water. ¬†Drawn to the recorded visual history of the protected waterway of British Columbia, where he now lives, Buller presents a sense of the rich and dynamic natural environment as it relates to people and their ability to live both inside and outside of themselves.
