The artist Zoë Buckman’s loft-cum-studio in Dumbo delivers a sensory overload of paintings, photography and sketches from around the world. Yet Ms. Buckman, born in London, has never thought of herself as a collector. “I’m someone who lives with the work of artists I’ve been lucky enough to know or trade with,” she said on a recent afternoon, as sunlight flooded through the oversized windows overlooking the Manhattan Bridge. Contemporary artists are her favorites. Pieces like these are interspersed with representations of Hindu gods that Ms. Buckman picked up on trips to India, and some art by her daughter, Cleo. [More]
