Caro Bühler – the human being at the center
Caro Buehler’s work has always revolved around the human being – as an organism, as a figure and as a personality. As an artist, she deals with the complexity and diversity of people. The fascination for this complexity can be found in the often multi-layered acrylic or oil paint images, for which she prefers to use her vigorously guided brush on large-format canvases. Although her career initially started in a different field, humans have always been central to her profession. Practicing as a healthcare professional before she devoted herself completely to painting, Caro Buehler was intensively occupied with the human body, its anatomy and its functions. It would be natural to assume that the painting of the human body – or the figurative representation of humankind – has it’s origin in Caro Buehler’s medical background. However, when one listens to her speak, it quickly becomes apparent, that her painting goes far deeper than a superficial representation of the human form. The artist is fascinated by the person as a whole and is most interested in the nature and complexity of being human.
