In his paintings, Derrick Buisch combines vibrant colors, varied surface textures, and abstract imagery borrowed from everyday sources, including maps, commercial product design, roadside signs, and album covers. As a key component of his creative process, Buisch maintains an archive of sketchbooks that serves as a compendium of potential subjects and forms. Big Monster Grid is composed of seventy-seven individual panels, each featuring a distinct graphic rendering of a monster icon culled from this inventory. Carefully arranged in a grid pattern, these paintings present a comprehensive look at a single graphic motif. Playfully intended by the artist to be read as a wall of LPs albums in a record store, his gathering of textured and stylized paintings fetishizes the eye-popping arrangements of retail displays and taps into feelings of desire and consumption.
