Anderson Ranch Editions

John Buck

Artist Statement

I have always been excited about the exploration of space. This print was inspired by the new James Webb Space Telescope and the images it produces of the most distant parts of space. Inevitably, the discoveries we make of the unknown will reveal things we didn’t expect to find, perhaps things as unexpected as driftwood on the moon.

About the Artist

John Buck received his BFA in sculpture from Kansas City Art Institute in 1968 and his MFA in sculpture from UC Davis in 1972. John Buck is both a sculptor and a printmaker. He works with interrelated bodies of work: carved wood assemblage sculptures, bronze sculptures, and large, multicolored woodblock prints. Buck lives in Montana and Hawaii, has created several major bronze sculpture commissions and his work is in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Brooklyn Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Seattle Art Museum, the Library of Congress among others.
