Both a sculptor and a printmaker, John Buck works with two interrelated bodies of work: carved wood, assemblage and bronze sculptures and large, multicolored woodblock prints. Since beginning his collaboration with Bud Shark in 1983, Buck has explored the expressive possibilities of woodblock in more than 40 different prints.
Buck lives in Montana and Hawaii and has shown his woodcuts and sculptures
widely. He created a major bronze sculpture commission for Lewis and Clark
College in Portland, Ore. His work is in the collections of The Art
Institute of Chicago, The Brooklyn Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, The San
Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Seattle Art Museum, The Library of
Congress and many others. A retrospective of Bucks graphic work titled John Buck: Iconography is on an extended national tour. It is showing at
the Yellowstone Art Museum through Jan. 9.
