Anne Buckwalter. ARTESANTANDER 2022

Anne Buckwalter (Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 1987) is a young american painter that explores female identity and the coexistence of contradictory elements in her work. Inspired by the folk art traditions of her Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, her work arranges disparate objects in mysterious rooms and ambiguous spaces. Her paintings are a combination of invented subjects and elements drawn from her own life. In her work sometimes there are no characters, bodies that try to be described without having to be shown through these objects. Buckwalter creates an ambiguous narrative by juxtaposing banal everyday objects, such as a soda can, or a jumper, with more provocative objects that allow her to delve into questions about the female body, intimacy, and gender roles.
