Anne Buckwalter is an artist exploring female identity and the coexistence of contradictory elements. Inspired by the folk art traditions of her Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, her work arranges disparate objects in mysterious rooms and ambiguous spaces. By imagining obscure narratives that embrace paradoxes, her paintings delve into questions about the female body, intimacy, and gender roles.
Anne has been an artist-in-residence at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Hewnoaks Artist Colony, Galveston Artist Residency, and the Vermont Studio Center. She received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Grant in 2016 and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2021. Her work has been featured in New American Paintings, Create Magazine, and The Jealous Curator, and exhibited in Boston, Montréal, Toronto, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and New York, among other cities. Her writing has been published in McSweeney’s Internet Tendency and Points in Case. She lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
