Jack Buckley is an emerging multi-disciplinary artist based on Dharug land, in the Blue Mountains, Australia. Jack's work explores the complex world of the Australian environment, with particular focus on the relationship between organic and constructed domains. A scientific inspired illustrative process combines with delicate embroidered subjects, creating meticulously detailed works which consider the nature of underlooked and unknown worlds.
Jack's debut solo exhibition 'Amongst the Gums' was presented by the Southern Highlands Artisans Collective of Robertson in 2021, and followed up with 'In Their Flowers', with Nationwide Curating in Neutral Bay in 2022. He has contributed to various group shows in spaces including the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens, DRAW Space, the Corner Store Gallery, Crackpot Gallery, the Sydney Affordable Art Fair, and as a finalist in prizes including the York Botanic Prize and Blue Mountains Creative Arts Centre Prize.
In 2023 he was awarded the Lloyd Rees Emerging Artist Award, which will be followed by a solo show presented by Lane Cove Gallery in 2025. He was an inaugural participant in the Ancher Points Emerging Artists Intensive through Penrith Regional Gallery. In 2024 Jack been invited to contribute to the Grampian Arts Grampians Textures program, and will present a solo show through Braemar Gallery.
