Anna Buckner is an artist from North Carolina who explores vulnerability through materials. Soft, her work exists somewhere in between piecework and painting. She begins by first piecing fabric scraps together, forming a quilt top that is then stretched on a support. The initial symmetry of the piecework is compromised through stretching, causing the material to warp. The support of the painting is therefore a tool for transformation, revealing the potential of these materials and pushing them into a role that they are not traditionally used for.
