John Buck is renowned for his carved wood and bronze sculptures and monumental woodblock prints. In recent years, he has turned his attention to creating ever-more-complex mechanical kinetic sculptures, some of which you can see at Kinetic, a new exhibition at KANEKO in Omaha, Nebraska. In fact, you can see 14 of his giant, hand-carved creations until 14th October 2017, when the show closes.
Buck is an artist who is fascinated by the cultural imagery surrounding his two homes (one in Bozeman, Montana, and the other on the Big Island of Hawaii), current events, popular culture, and the irony inherent in world history. This collected visual vocabulary weaves through his sculptural and print works.
