Chad Buck: Recent Works

Brian Gross Fine Art is pleased to announce an exhibition of recent works by Bay Area painter Chad Buck, opening on Thursday, July 7th with a reception for the artist from 5:30-7:30pm. Buck continues his sensory exploration of color and texture with twelve new gestural abstract paintings.

Buck’s brilliantly colored works examine the material process of painting. The works were conceived in Mexico, and as a departure from his previous series, his process reflects a textural and sensual expressionism. Reduced to the most elemental aspects of perception, these paintings conjure both the infinite and the sublime. He uses a powerful diversity of materials, drawing with pure silver and mixing ground marble and mica with oil alkyd. In this exhibition, he applies enamel on burlap to create vibrant and iridescent expanses of color. The result of Buck’s meditation on color and material is a visual field nuanced by form and shape, in which the painterly process is made apparent and integral to the work.

Born in Caldwell, Idaho, Buck received his MFA from Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah. Well-known for his printmaking in addition to his paintings, he has exhibited widely in the United States, as well as in Japan, Mexico and France. In 2001, Buck was awarded the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. He lives and works in Oakland, California.
