Artist Statement

Christy Bonneau’s medium to large-scale oils are abstract, emotional landscapes infused with the feeling of what it means to be innately human.

Crazy, quiet, she paints in her studio creating pieces whose center’s revolve around issues of connectedness.

Bonneau mixes pigments moving in and out of reality working on a hierarchical, symbolic scale, flushing formulas and responding to theoretical questions fulfilling the canvas’ requirements.

Within the fields of color the human spirit dances with the rhythm of life.
Each painting causes pause, draws the viewer into its center, and demands an emotive response. She also integrates her oils with printmaking, intimate etchings, transfers and collages in multi-media expression.

Christy Bonneau has discovered the synergy of the true professional artist discipline and freedom.
