In 2008, to mark a transformation in his work, Robert Beck made an artwork of his name, changing it by a single letter to Robert Buck. He graduated from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, Film and Television Program and the Whitney Museum of American Art's Independent Study Program in 1993. His work has been exhibited internationally, and is included in museum collections across the US. His work is represented by CRG Gallery, New York City, Stephen Friedman Gallery, London, and Galerie Nora Fisch, Beunos Aires. Buck lives and works in NYC and Far West Texas. Subject headings for his work include identity, authorship, masculinity, and violence.
