Description

Delbert got a young start as a folk artist. He began making sculpture from found objects at age twelve and was represented in a gallery by the time he was fourteen. Delbert Buck is a Native American artist who assembles constructions from found objects and cottonwood limbs, then roughly carves and paints them. His first carvings were the toy guns and the small wooden horses he and his brothers used to make. All of his carving is by hand and he uses acrylic paint and a wide variety of found materials. Paper, fabric, yarn, ans wool all find their way into his work. This piece depicts three dogs playing cards. Some of the ears of the dogs have broken off.
