about me.jpg

about me...


“As a student of psychology and an enthusiast of human nature, I have always been intrigued by underlying allusions and the universal body language. The genuine truth expressed through the subtlety of the unspoken gesture is my inspiration for sculpture of the human form. 

Through these images emerging from a cloth of wire, I hope to capture and share these intimate yet universal expressions. The unimposing transparency of the material intended to offer a moment or a memory, which each observer can make his /her own. ”

BIO

Bonnie was born in New Jersey, in 1965. At the age of 11, she moved with her family to Israel, where she lived for most of her adult life. After an accomplished career in the corporate world, Bonnie ventured out on artistic endeavors in 2006, a pursuit which led her to the exploration of sculpture, using wire mesh as her primary medium. 

 Bonnie was fortunate to have trained under artist No’am Douieb, and study life sculpture and mesh under the renowned Israeli sculptor, Shulamit Hartal. Today her training, life experience and passion to communicate, breathe life into a woven cloth of wire which transcends into an identity of its own. 

 In 2009, Bonnie returned to the US with her husband and two sons. She now works out of her home studio in Cherry Hill, NJ.  Since her return, she has been accepted to national juried exhibits and invitational shows in NY, NJ and PA as well as several invitational art residencies in Poland.Her fascination with the universal body language and the energy of movement continues to imbue her works. 

Technique


Drawing from life images, memory and photographs, I form my sculptures from a single sheet of wire mesh.  All sculptures are created freehand by manipulating the mesh into form with my hands and minimal tools. There are no molds or casts used in the creative process, so each sculpture is individual and unique. 

The finished piece takes the form of a relief. Once final, the sculptures are painted and then mounted onto a background for framing.
