Beverly Buchanan at Brooklyn Museum


The total sympathy acquired in building miniature home after home, impossible to not feel sympathetic toward them. Many of Buchanan's symbols and methods, painfully obvious, homes and self portraits, inspire sympathy for the basic means of construction, like Maureen Gallace, the simplest means to construct/render the desire, objects like vessels for want, for a home, for recognition: "that’s the idea behind the sculptures … it’s like, ‘Here I am; I’m still here!’”"
