John Buck

John Buck is well known 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. 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.


After attending the Skowhegan School of Sculpture and Painting in 1971, Buck went on to get his MFA from the University of California, Davis, in 1972. Since then, he has exhibited widely across the US. Recent shows include "KINETIC" at Kaneko, Omaha, NE (2017); "A Studio in Iceland" at Anglim Gilbert Gallery, San Francisco, CA (2016); and "John Buck: Free For All" at the Missoula Art Museum, Missoula, MT.
