BUCKLEY is a visual philosopher. Her works manifest in varied forms, including drawings, paintings, sculpture, performance, poetry, and experiential events. Through each medium, she reveals the mythology of an enlightened society. A synthesis of modern voicing and ancient forms, Buckley’s works traverse the symbolic and timeless experiences of self, prompting conscious contemplation of inner life. Buckley’s stream of consciousness process creates a sense of instant action which can be felt immediately in her glyph-like imagery; its lines exact and seemingly completed in one stroke. Her interplay of form and space are as honest and direct as instinct. Rather than dictating the complexities of reality, Buckley’s inclination towards simplicity invites the viewer to deploy their own facilities of reason, intuition, and reflection.
Buckley lives and works in Portland & Los Angeles.
