Christopher Buckley, Rockville Centre
Member Since June 2009
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. 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, all became primary themes throughout Christopher's
art.

Today, Christopher lives in Rockville Centre, NY with his wife and three children. He continues to share his love of art with family and friends by creating a unique work of art for his family's annual holiday card and is extremely excited about reaching more people through his website at ImageKind.

Christopher earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from St. John's
University.
