About Bon Roberts – The Artist
A Vancouver and Sunshine Coast based painter, photographer and Arts festival creative director. Bon’s artwork explores connectivity, communication and intuition found within permaculture environments.
Depictions are mostly larger works articulated through short run limited edition photographic print and oil on canvas. Studying and continually creating a food safe and self sustainable environment on acreage on the Sunshine Coast for over 10 years directly influences and impacts both the subject and stylistic expression of her work. Meandering and mosaic like canvases take on kinetic rhythmical patterns that are mostly abstract, created without reference and reliant on intuitive flow and natural light. Other canvases merge this kinetic flow with depictions of birds that have a sharp focus with an intimate experience. This fusion of abstract, seemingly random pattern and singular focus on the core subject creates what the artist explains as her reflection of the daily immersion experienced with the lives of the birds and nature she is surrounded by.
The photographic component to Bon’s work is based on sharing her own direct understanding of the innate beauty, history, and connection to the heritage birds she raises. The works are highly observational, intensely captivating and conceptual within the realm of art and nature. Bon can work for months with a subject to capture a fleeting moment that she seemingly pauses and depicts with emotional clarity.
Bons work is priced from $500 to $5,000.
