Born and raised in Lancaster, PA, Anne Buckwalter’s practice explores female identity and the coexistence of contradictory elements. Inspired by the historic tradition of allegorical painting, her work arranges disparate objects and mysterious figures in ambiguous spaces. By imagining obscure narratives and embracing paradoxes, her paintings examine how gender-related expectations are defined and disrupted. Anne has been an artist-in-residence at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Hewnoaks Artist Colony, and the Vermont Studio Center, and she received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Grant in 2016. Her paintings have been exhibited in Boston, Montréal, Toronto, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, New York, and Rome, among other cities. She received a BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia in 2010, and an MFA from Maine College of Art in 2012.
