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 depicts figures in ambiguous situations as a way of exploring the strange, nebulous rules of human behavior. I intend my paintings to be both quiet and disquieting, using obscurity, tension, and dark humor to investigate social constructs. I'm particularly interested in creating a dialogue about how power dynamics are defined and disrupted.
