Shane Buckland is from Portmouth, in the UK and is an artist that works with painting and sculpture. He works in a very immediate manner, sometimes using found objects and working with what he finds from his environment appears new again. His work is one of the ways in which he responds to the challenges that he faces, and he finds ways to communicate through the language of abstraction and familiarity. His introverted nature speaks out from his paintings as he has always found peace in looking inward rather than searching for something out in the world. Some of Buckland’s practice references various abstract techniques commonly known as ‘Action Painting’ but his individual voice speaks clearly from his paintings and his cheek and humour gives him enough distance from some of his influences.
