" Buckman takes issue with that commanding voice, teasing out how patriarchal authority insidiously permeates our ideas of femininity and the ways we practically deal with women’s bodies... [Her works] get at ideas about the feminine — how it is a complex blend of that “soft hand” weaponized when curled into a fist, when imprisoned inside a glove, in those instances when a woman has to fight."
" [A] visceral quality translates across Buckman's use of media... And she addresses fraught topics: giving birth, eventual death; the attack on women's healthcare and Planned Parenthood; the duality in hip-hop's language; existing within a patriarchy... For her, it's about consciousness -specifically, raising it - whether that's through shock, confusion, laughter, silence."
The delightful, pastel and powerful Zoe Buckman, who pounces on the viewer with inexorable feminine observations. It is not just the pronouncement of intertwining the masculine truculent voice metaphorically channeled through boxing gloves..., which makes her work rich and incandescent in its visceral will to achieve the strength and fight of women, but to display that either one or many are powerful; unafraid to be netted together in unity. By the same token, this metaphor conveys the often beaten down quality that women face each day."
