also in the AD HOC – ALCOVE: BONNIE DURHAM’S – ‘ACT NATURAL’.
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 the 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 finds at flea markets, second hand stores and discarded on the street.
