Yvonne Buchanan is a multi-disciplinary artist focusing on illustration, drawing, video and film. Buchanan 's work strives to bring the peripheral into focus, to render the invisible visible in ordinary experience. I accomplish this through the manipulation of video footage, which alters the familiar. Her work deals with gender, race, and spirituality..
