From R.C. Baker’s review of “Brian Buckley: Ghost Ship” for The Village Voice:
The rich blue tones of the cyanotypes in Brian Buckley’s exhibition “Ghost Ship” conjure a sense of ancient waters ravaged by the gods. Dark waves in 2017’s ‘Another Strange Island’ seem ready to engulf the viewer, the craggy isle on the high, distant horizon offering dubious refuge—of a piece with a title implying characters on a daunting adventure. Buckley’s father taught Homer’s ‘Odyssey’ at City College, and the classic Greek tale is referenced in this show through images of battered statues, sailboats, frayed strands of rope, and sea monsters.
