Endless Illusions

Endless Illusions calls attention to the visual texture qualities that are immediately perceived, but where work of opposite ends of the spectrum meets. The artworks selected were based on the following principles of art making: line, layers, movement, and the unique use of color. While sharing common values, the use of different mediums dictates the outcome of the works.

Kate Bonner comments on our experience living in a world where we scroll, zoom in or out and navigate thousands of images through digital platforms. The artist’s process includes folding or cutting her own photographs, scanning them to produce a new picture, and finally manipulating the results using computer software. These layered images are then applied to a shaped aluminum panel, which compels the work to oscillate between photograph, painting, and sculpture. Ignoring the context of the original photograph, Bonner lets us marvel at the beautiful details of her snapshots without getting distracted by the subject.

Kate Bonner received her BFA at Calvin College and her MFA at California College of the Arts. She has exhibited nationally, including Luis De Jesus, Los Angeles, CA; Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco, CA; San Jose Institute for Contemporary Art, San Jose, CA; Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA; Et al., San Francisco, CA; and many more. She has been awarded artist residencies at the School of Visual Arts and Inside Zone in Romania.
