From the post at Wall Street International:
ClampArt is pleased to announce “Brian Buckley: Ghost Ship”—the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. “Ghost Ship” is an installation of unique, large-scale cyanotype prints. Through the use of a 19th-century photographic process that pre-dates silver-based practices, the artist employs its naturally rich, blue tones to endeavor to express his thoughts on the beauty and mystery of the vast seas and his long-felt fascination with the power and danger of deep waters.
Incorporating aspects of Greek mythology into the project, the artist uses these stories to express his own personal experiences at sea. Loosely drawing from the narrative and imagery in The Odyssey—a text taught by Buckley’s father at City College in New York City—the artist’s prints reference ghost ships and sea monsters, sirens and Sappho.
