About the Artist
Art has been a major force in Buckheim’s life; he holds a BA and MA in art, has taught art, has created catalogs for major artists, has been an art director in advertising, and paints both abstract and representational work, creates monotypes, works in clay, and fashions sculpture from found/created objects.
A Michigan native, he moved to the Florida Keys in the l980s to focus on his painting. Along the way he became a restaurateur and a banker. His Keys studio overlooks the water, as do his summer home and studio in Boothbay Harbor. Although for years he painted abstract work, his current figurative work “reflects a fresh investigation of both new material and new subject matter.” And like his abstract paintings, his new work focuses on shapes, light, and vision. He shows regularly at Lucky Street and in other galleries in mainland Florida and in Michigan.
