Christopher F Buckley
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope



ARTIST STATEMENT: Christopher Buckley was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, where his early subjects included the streets, alleyways and tenement buildings in and around his boyhood home in Homecrest, as well as the late 19th Century architecture of Park Slope, where he spent many days while visiting his grandparents and extended family, and where he currently resides. As he began to explore his family history, Brooklyn's forgotten agricultural past was brought to life in the stories told to him by his grandfather, Gilbert Buckley, who was born and raised on an old Dutch farmstead in Flatlands where the Buckley's were tenant farmers. These stories, combined with a fascination with the city's urban infrastructure, have all become primary themes throughout Christopher's art. Christopher earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from St. John's University, and is extremely excited about reaching people through BRIC Arts.
