Anna Buckner is interested in exploring the limits of existing structures and systems of logic. Buckner studies grid patterns inherent within the natural world, painting, language, technology and textiles. She aims to disrupt these systems, pushing them to their comprehensible limits in an effort to create space for new visual and poetic possibilities. Buckner’s work is in-between painting, piecework, sculpture, installation, and performance as a way to probe the boundaries of established forms of making.
Anna Buckner was raised in North Carolina. She received a BFA in painting from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2012 and an MFA in painting from Indiana University in 2016. In 2014, she completed an apprenticeship in Buddhist Thangka painting in Sikkim, India. She is currently a visiting assistant professor at Michigan State University and co-founder of Command Zine.
