About the paintings:
"Dumpster Diver" - This oil on canvas painting was created from a paper collage, which included a camera-phone photo and a clipping from National Geographic. It was created during a period when the artist was taking time to reflect on waste and specifically, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
"Heart" - The artist used layers of paint in a similar way to using paper in a collage, utilizing masking and mono-printing to apply the oil paint. According to the artist, "the shape of the figure connotes a flag or a vessel, a coffin or a dumpster. The ground is the swamp."
"Latent Energy" - There was no initial plan or layout for this painting, but the artist makes note to "trusting the process", while embarking on a painting without a definitive ending.
About the artist:
Buck’s work is an on going exploration of nature, through picture-making. The word ‘nature,’ as a theme encompasses both the terrestrial environment and conceptions of human nature. Buck’s interest is in cycles of life and exchanges of energy, whether botanical, psychological, or industrial.

We wanted to draw your attention to an article in the January issue of East Side Monthly, on S.W. Dinge, a Providence artist in regular rotation at all of OneWay Gallery's locations, and whose work we have featured here on the blog.
The following is an excerpt from "Itches that Need Scratching" by Renee Doucette.
It is no secret that Providence is full of artists. While there are some visual artists who have become household names, many others remain under the radar, never seeming to get the recognition that should be due. One such artist, who goes by the pseudonym S.W. Dinge, originally hails from the Adirondacks in upstate New York. He relocated to Providence ten years ago and has been a resident on the East Side for the past four, during which time he has experienced quiet success.
As a young man out of college, Dinge moved to Boulder, Colorado with friends. Before arriving at his destination, he made a monumental decision that he was not going to play around: he wanted to be an artist and he was going to devote his life to making that happen. In Boulder, he spent his formative years as an artist immersed in his studio, experimenting and creating art while keeping his nose in a revolving stack of art books. He never expected overnight success; he made his own rules and found different ways to exhibit his work. After three years, Dinge started to see all of his hard work and devotion pay off. It was around this time he decided to move back east. Providence may not have always been the obvious choice, but it fulfilled all the requirements Dinge was looking for – and for the first time, he was not living in the mountains.
Soon after Dinge arrived in Providence, he met the crew at AS220, the art space downtown, and even though he decided against moving into their live/work loft space, he was able to start showing his work in their gallery spaces. He also started showing at the West Side restaurant, Julians. The second time he decided to hang some work there, he received an important phone call. Christian Harder, co-director of OneWay Gallery had been at brunch when he first saw Dinge’s work displayed in the restaurant and invited him to join the gallery’s roster. At the time, Harder and Stephen Cook were just starting to pull together some artists for their new gallery space in Narragansett.
