For Charles Buckley, painting as a practice is a means of engaging with the world and investigating preconceived notions. His progression paintings are rendered on multiple canvases and are an investigation of the construction of narrative and progress. Buckley’s work often deals with “leakage,” which he describes as “the area where things cannot be explained rationally, yet fit within the logic of the painting and seem to be known.”
Charles Buckley received an MFA at Hunter College in New York and a BFA in painting at the California College Of Arts in Oakland, California.
