1984 · Germany
Buckner was born in 1984 in Frankfurt, Germany. Raised in Europe, Buckner was heavily influenced by the abundant legacy of Western painting that spans from the Renaissance to the Contemporary period. French modernist painter Balthus became a source of inspiration with his opaquely painted figurative work and daring use of color.
After enrolling at the renowned Kunstakamedie Düsseldorf, Buckner studied under one of the most distinguished figurative painters Peter Doig. Doig would eventually become her mentor—showing her how an artist can live humbly and teaching her to follow the rich legacy of the Kunstakamedie. Buckner’s paintings have been selected for solo and group exhibitions internationally, including shows in London and Rome amongst others.
Buckner has been in residence at Edward Ressle from July 18th until September 17th.
