Selected Works II continues Buckner's explorations of image-processing techniques to portray the intangible levels of mental and spiritual energy. In The Golden Pictures, she animates everyday objects to startling effect, as they become fantastic visualizations of the energies of "inanimate" objects. Using the square as her starting point, Buckner transforms geometry into texture and pattern in Greece to Jupiter: It's A Matter of Energy, a formal articulation of a transcendent process.
