Derek Buckner
American Realist, Derek Buckner 'Coney Island'

2008

About the Item

Available at Madelyn Jordon Fine Art. 'Coney Island' 2008 by Derek Buckner. Oil on canvas, 28 x 40 in. / Frame: 33.5 x 45.5 in. This painting depicts the iconic Coney Island in NYC in the artist's contemporary, realistic style. Viewed from the beach looking onto the amusement park, AKA as Luna Park, this work features the park's main attractions: ferris wheel, free fall, and the infamous roller coaster, The Cyclone. In rich colors of blue, red, yellow, brown, pink, and white. Framed in wood frame painted in gold. Derek Buckner’s virtuosity is revealed in visionary landscapes of country and shore which haunt our memories and delight our senses. Painting en plein air, in the tradition of the Impressionists, Buckner’s canvases offer a travelogue of European journeys, tropical idylls, and familiar locales. Standing before each painting, we bathe in the fast- fleeting atmosphere of the scene, experiencing it fully. Beyond the landscape, Buckner voraciously applies his considerable skill to the figure, working masterfully from the model in the classical tradition. Another favorite subject is his native Brooklyn. Painting the industrial core of a tireless city, unmanicured, yet beautiful, Buckner uses singular blocks of color as stand-ins for buildings or truck bodies. Born in 1970, Derek Buckner at present lives in Brooklyn, NY, with his wife and their two sons and daughter. The artist graduated from LaGuardia High School of Music and Art, as well as Vassar College, The Art Students League of New York and received a B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has exhibited internationally and his work has been featured in The New York Times, LA Times, and The New Yorker, among others.

  • At the Spring
    By Joshua Shaw
    Located in New York, NY
    Joshua Shaw was a farmer’s son, born in Billingborough, Lincolnshire, and orphaned at the age of seven. After a boyhood of privation, he tried a number of occupations, until he finally apprenticed to a sign painter and found his métier. Shaw went to Manchester to study art, and by 1802 was in Bath, painting landscapes. In that year he began to exhibit his work at the Royal Academy in London. Essentially self-taught, Shaw achieved an impressive level of competence and versatility, producing portraits, floral compositions, still lifes, landscapes, and, cattle pieces. Shaw continued to send works for exhibition at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, and the Suffolk Street Gallery, all in London, until 1841. (Although Shaw is regularly mentioned and frequently illustrated in a host of general books on American art history, as well as included in numerous historical survey exhibitions, the only monographic study of this artist is Miriam Carroll Woods, “Joshua Shaw [1776–1860]: A Study of the Artist and his Paintings” [M.A. thesis, University of California at Los Angeles, 1971]. Apart from short biographical sketches in various dictionaries and museum collection catalogues, the two most interesting references, both contemporary, are John Sartain’s personal recollections in The Reminiscences of a Very Old Man, 1808–1897 [1899; reprint 1969] and an article in Scientific American from August 7, 1869, “Joshua Shaw, Artist and Inventor.” The article quotes extensively from an autobiographical document in the possession of Shaw’s grandson that Shaw prepared for William Dunlap...

    By Willard Dixon
    Located in Burlingame, CA
    A tranquil oil painting featuring an early evening sunset with people strolling on the main beach in Carmel in front of a majestic sky from Willard Dixon, who is one of the finest American contemporary realist painters today. Dixon has painted coastal landscapes for 35 years, capturing the undeniable beauty of the West with its grand and humble spirit. The painting, with its atmospheric light and calm color palette in natural sky blue and setting sun warm red to purple, is contemporary and serene. The colors are reminiscent of Rothko as they shift in natural bands. Looking at this painting is like looking through a window to a lovely moment as the close of a day. Dixon’s work can be found in numerous distinctive private and public collections, as well as the San Francisco Museum of Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art and his work is collected Internationally. Artist signed and dated. A classic Dixon that will sure to bring those who view it a life time of pleasure. Carmel Beach, 18 x 53 inches.
