Learn About GAP Award
Christopher Buening’s work is autobiographical in nature. The random wanderings of the mind, his environment, daily thoughts, current events, morality and ethical issues all influence his creative process. He has recently been expanding on this work to include murals and installation. He will use his 2011 GAP funding to purchase materials for a specific project to continue these explorations.
Artist’s Addenda: Chistopher won a 2008 PONCHO Artistic Merit Award.
