Charlie Buckley paints vibrant, panoramic landscapes and cityscapes that demonstrate an acute sensitivity to the tones and undertones of his surroundings. His newest works incorporate silk-screened patterns to explore the visual relationship between surface texture and spatial depth. He’s also begun to experiment with montage in his work, recently producing a series of painted houses composed of disparate architectural fragments that together form a visually unified whole. In addition to his paintings, he also makes large sculptural wall assemblages that deploy geometric abstraction in their aerial depictions of geographic topographies.
Buckley received a BFA in Painting from the University of Mississippi in 2004, and an MFA in 2009 from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He has taught art courses at Miami University and Mississippi State University, and now operates a full-time studio in Tupelo.
