Incorporating folk art traditions from Amish quilt patterns and Vorschriften writing exercises, Buckwalter juxtaposes convention with contemporary issues of feminine identity, sexuality, and health.

Wilson earned his M.F.A. from Hunter College in 2012 where he currently teaches sculpture. Two of Wilson’s sculptures were previously on view in the Freedman Gallery’s National Juried Exhibition on social justice in the fall of 2018 for which he won the “Best in Show” award. Out of an investigation of the objects, architecture and institution of the U.S. prison industry, Wilson recently developed a series of hardwood sculptures that speak to issues of incarceration. Wilson employs processes of carving, laminating, steaming, bending, sanding, turning and polishing wood to impress time in a physical way onto a material, evoking the effects of labor and confinement on the body. Wilson’s work as a whole delves into the power dynamics of institutions of governance and oppression with a specific focus on how objects and architecture affect the human body and perception.
