Chris Buck studied at Redruth School of Art, Cornwall. He has worked in several foundries, which has given him a thorough knowledge of casting techniques. He is inspired by the St. Ives abstract artists, and is a Member of the Penwith Society of Arts founded by Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson.
His studio is in a converted byre, overlooking fields and hedgerows, and this brings a feeling of harmony with the natural world to his art.
Producing sculpture in both wood and stone, it is in bronze that he finds the greatest satisfaction, combining natural forms and industrial precision to achieve individual pieces of strength and beauty.
