Hand-embroidered tea towels extolling hearth and home often conjure realms of domestic bliss. In Zoë Buckman’s work, however, objects such as these carry weighted meaning, frequently revealing domestic violence. At this year’s Dallas Art Fair, Albertz Benda gallery will present Buckman’s provocative work, which continues its exploration of traditional gender roles within the domestic sphere. Buckman views the female side of this dynamic as potentially empowering while simultaneously oppressive. “I am most interested in work that expresses the gray areas or nuances between two seemingly polarizing ideas,” explains the British-born, Brooklyn-based artist.
