"SIMPLY BUSTER" (2009) by Mark Redfield. Acrylic on canvas panel. (16x20)

Buster Keaton remains a great inspiration to me, both as an actor and filmmaker. One of the first plays I ever did professionally was inspired by Keaton's spirit of comedy and the surreal; his recurring theme of man against machine; of the attempt to master forces that overwhelm us all. I'll never stop learning from him.

  1. In your painting Mark, all I've got to say is "the eyes, the eyes" YOU NAILED THE GREAT BUSTER!
    One of the few things (few I tells ya) nice about living in Kansas/MO is that I'm close to Iola, Kansas at its Bowlus Art Center which hosts a Buster Keaton film festival every year.
    Thanks for sharing your talent Mark.
