Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
Howard Buchwald was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1943. He received a B.F.A. from Cooper Union, New York and an M.A. from Hunter College of the City University of New York. His awards include two from the National Endowment for the Arts; a Guggenheim Fellowship; and grants from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts and Creative Artists Program Services. The artist resides in New York City.

In the 1970s the artist dared to violate the sacred picture plane by cutting into the support giving these frontal works an iconic presence. This presence is enhanced by the geometrical shapes Buchwald used; the circle, the triangle, the square. With many layers of oil paint, he built a rich surface juxtaposing the color of the ground often stemming from the primaries with the color of the geometric shape.A regal green painting that conjures nature in its palette has a buff color triangle, an object of contemplation; a royal red painting has a darker red square around its perimeter, a meditation on space.

The Butler Institute has work in its collection by Howard Buchwald, UNTITLED, 1974, oil on linen, 64 x 64 inches. His works from the 1970s are limited in palette and elemental in their approach to the figure ground relation-ship. They are powerful, quiet and as fresh today as they were when painted 25 years ago.

In contrast to the quiet of the early paintings is the pictorial complexity of Buchwald's newer work. Line has taken over the rhythmic field of these paintings in both large and small scale, functioning as a unit of color. Line next to line the colors dance across the canvas surface suggesting ribbons unfurled in the wind. It is an evolution of the artist's paintings from the late 1980s and early 1990s when the artist used line in a rectilinear fashion, the new works use line in curvilinear fashion.
