Myke Buckingham

CAAF Residency, November – December 2022

During Myke’s residency he will build individual sculptural elements adorned by his unique visual language and technique of ‘recryption’. Myke originally developed this technique while exploring his relationship with language and symbol through artistic practice. Recryption aims to question how we interact with text through an automatic, intuitive, or interpretive process. He will bring scrap material and found objects into the studio space to create assemblages. These works will then be combined to create larger scale sculptural works.
