Anne Buckwalter is an American painter. Her work has been exhibited and collected in the United States, Canada, and Italy, and she has participated in residency programs in the US and Canada. She lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
Inspired by the historic tradition of allegorical painting, my work explores and challenges the rules of human behavior and interaction. At once quiet and disquieting, my paintings employ uncertainty, tension, and ambiguous representational space to investigate the emptiness of social constructs. Specifically, my work raises questions about how gender-related expectations are defined and disrupted.
