About

'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, where trucks, ships and factories occupy a crowded picture plane. Using singular blocks of color as stand-ins for buildings or truck bodies, the artist depicts the industrial core of a tireless city, un-manicured, yet beautiful. Born 1970, Derek Buckner currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. 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.
