Andy atticus bunny

Andy Buck spent much of his youth living in Geneva, Switzer­land while his father, an expert in trop­i­cal medi­cine, worked for the World Health Orga­ni­za­tion. Immersed in an inter­na­tional envi­ron­ment, Buck gained an appre­ci­a­tion for multi­cul­tur­al­ism and was first exposed to the many cultural and geograph­i­cal wonders of the world. Inspired first by African and Oceanic arti­facts through his father’s frequent travels, his fasci­na­tion with unique artis­tic perspec­tives and global inter­pre­ta­tions of the natural world has guided his creative prac­tice as a furni­ture designer and artist. An active maker for more than 25 years, Andy Buck has exhib­ited his work in galleries and museums through­out the United States, in Europe and Australia. Bring­ing together tradi­tional crafts­man­ship, inves­ti­ga­tions in form, pattern, and color­ful painted surfaces, his work of furni­ture and sculp­ture is included in both public and private collec­tions. Based in Upstate New York, Buck main­tains a studio and leads the Wood­work­ing and Furni­ture Design program at the Rochester Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy where he has been teach­ing for the last 22 years.
