|Bucky intends his art to evoke strong emotional responses in viewers. He paints his acrylic pieces in bright colors with a heavy impasto style and no straight lines, making his paintings seem to writhe and dance on the canvas. This liveliness comes across on his prints too. |
Bucky has developed his style as a blend of past Expressionists: van Gogh, Gauguin and Emille Bernard, with recent influences from Colorado artists Charles H. Rockey and Joni Giarratano. His compositions include florals and landscapes but tend to focus more and more on Colorado’s plentiful Victorian era buildings. Painting architecture and "home portraits" is an old love that allows Bucky to incorporate his background in structural engineering and photography into his painting career. His up-close vantage points often produce dramatic results in his architectural pieces.
Bucky holds degrees from the University of Kentucky and the University of Colorado. His recent art training takes place at Pueblo’s Sangre de Cristo Art Center. His award winning works have been displayed in numerous juried or judged shows along Colorado’s Front Range, including the 2001 Colorado State Fair Fine Art Show. In addition to painting he also loves the business of art marketing.
