BUCKLEY is a visual philosopher. Her works manifest in varied forms, including: drawings, paintings, sculpture, music, performance, poetry, animation, and experiential events. Each media allowing her a different dialect to explore her personal values and those of an enlightened society. A synthesis of modern voicing and ancient forms, Buckley’s works traverse the symbolic and timeless experiences of self, reaching beyond the aesthetic to prompt conscious contemplation of inner life. Her stream of consciousness process creates a sense of instant action which can be felt immediately in Buckley’s 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.
