His dad was an electrical engineer, so he was always building things. In time, Buwalda found a way for his mechanical side and his artistic bent to join forces in a “dark, whimsical way” that was all about having fun. “I titled this exhibition, ‘My Life in Motion’ for two reasons. First, it refers to the entirety of the work in the exhibit. This work has taken all my life thus far to create and collect,” Buwalda said. “Then, it alludes to the more obvious, the actual motorized movement in my work. Movement, to me, is the additional color in painting or an auxiliary note in music. Supplement-ing the third dimension with fourth dimensional value, movement through time and space, this dynamic compels and drives me.”Buwalda paused.The three stick-like mechanical figures were “talking” among themselves.Buwalda stepped closer. Listened. Shook his head and said, “Just gibberish.”Friday night’s reception is a “no miss” event at the Johnson Center. It will be a madhouse!
