Drawing is about hope
Working across mediums, Bonnie Gibbons’s playful work reflects her ongoing explorations of surface, pattern and light. Originally trained as a knitwear designer, texture and layers are integral to her handwriting.
From a van shaped studio, Bonnie Gibbons enjoys the process of observing and absorbing her surroundings; looking at things from the floor, and then straight up into the sky, the ground leading into a great expanse of nothing. For Bonnie, art is about hope - often optimistic, sometimes uneasy. Plants are as pleased for the rain as they are for the sun, and a storm is beautiful because within grey skies there are hidden reds, yellows, blues.
Bonnie Gibbons has created textiles and surfaces that have been sold in the US & Europe. She has exhibited her art in London, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.
