Catalogue Note

Born in Leicester, Buckley studied under Richard Hamilton at King’s College, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, University of Durham (1962-1967) and then under Terry Frost and Claude Rogers at University of Reading (1967-69). He later taught at Canterbury and Leeds Colleges of Art and Chelsea School of Art, and has taught at Reading since 1994 where he is Emeritus Professor of Fine Art. Buckley was a prizewinner at the 1974 and 1979 John Moores Exhibitions in Liverpool and his work is held in many public collections including those at Tate, the Arts Council, British Council and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Influenced by Schwitters, Picabia and Duchamp, his work demonstrates a sophisticated concern with the structure and process of painting often incorporating three-dimensional, shaped constructions and exposing the underlying physical architecture of each piece.
