Bonnie Durham, Act Natural

Ad Hoc Art
49 Bogart Street
February 27 - March 22, 2009
Reception: Friday, February 27, 7 - 10 PM
Web Site

Bonnie Durham’s work is about tuning in to her surroundings and never wasting time. Painting with gouache, acrylic, ink and watercolor and using calligraphy brushes, she slowly thins out the color in backgrounds of her work before creating the surface ‘spraypainted’ effects (without the use of spraypaint) which have become a trademark in Durham’s paintings. Recently, collage elements from used books containing old illustrations have found their way into her works. Her surfaces range from the traditional canvas, wood and panel, to the quite non-traditional cutting boards, clipboards, dresser drawers and wooden trays, which she find at flea markets, second hand stores and discarded on the streets. She has shown in New York, Los Angeles and Canada.
