BUCK! utilizes passages of text and varied typography layered with boldly silhouetted or highly contrasted forms to explore the various layers of the human experience. As an impetus for such explorations Buck delves deep into his own vices in an ongoing journey of spiritual discovery. This body of work, expressed through words and images, reflects the zeitgeist and is designed to expose the emotions of the viewer activating the nerve that connects each one of us to the core of Humanity.

    In All Things... by BUCK!

    04 Jan 2021 – 30 Jan 2021

    In All Things… "...man uses his ideas for the defense of his existence, to frighten away reality." -Ernest Becker
 1. There is no one narrative, find your way. 2. You are here. 3. Awareness. 4. Breathe. 5. Your humanity is challenged every morning you wake up. 6. I say good day to you, Sir/M’am! 7. Come to terms with death, Whereafter anything is possible. -Camus 8. Conflict only exists where there is division. -J. Krishnamurti 9. The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion. -Camus 10. We join a mass movement to escape responsibility 11. When you continually sow seeds of hate and division, you can’t be surprised at the outcome. 12. This is a reflection...what will you do in order to create the change you feel is necessary? 13. This is a serious game, the defense of one’s existence. -Ernest Becker 14. You can’t hold onto happiness. That wave will find you. Ride it. Wait for the next one. 15. We are here. 16. Learn more about your humanity in order to help humanity move forward. 17. Take a little trip thru your mind...and explore it. -M. Ripperton 18. Welcome to today. 19. How fate smiles upon us! 20. I love you all. http://www.mbilashaka.com

    That, Too

    24 Sep 2021 – 05 Nov 2021

    “…reality can be lied about, twisted and by tricks of cultural perception and repression. But anxiety cannot be lied about. Once you face up to it, it reveals the truth of your situation; and only by seeing that truth can open a new possibility for yourself.” -Ernest Becker, 
Denial of Death
