With the new year starting, we wanted to focus on how Bonfoey’s continues to move forward with new artwork and new artists. We are always very excited when new styles, techniques, and personalities are added to the Bonfoey community. Recently, we have taken on some new artists who we are excited to represent and share with you:
At an early age Leslye Arian discovered a way to reduce confusion in her life; by creating art, she could release feelings of loss, anger, fear and desire, thus creating a sense of calmness. As Arian explored her artistic and spiritual journey, she became inspired by abstract expressionism; post modernism; the push pull/theory of Hans Hoffmann; and the gestural elements in the works of Lee Krasner. Her process involves using mixed media of paint, pastel, charcoal and pencil. From there, she adds extra layers with recycled drawings and energetically reworks the surface to develop texture with sandpaper or her fingers. Creating art is a sense of spiritual freedom for Arian as she seeks balance in the layers, textures, patterns, and shapes.
Kathy Daywalt is an award winning and prolific working artist with 40 years of successful experience in a variety of mediums. Her works have been included in numerous juried exhibitions and one-person shows. These works are in private collections from New York to California. In 2011, Daywalt began to revisit watercolor, her original art interest. She enjoys exploring the human figure and beautifully patterned compositions. She recently started to experiment with yupo and using her experience with linocut printmaking to create her latest and richly textured pieces.
Kathy began following her calling as a child. Working full time while being a wife and mother, she continued to make time for art. She graduated Suma Cum Laude from Anne Arundel Community College with an AA Degree in Fine Art in 1995 and has continued in serious study with a variety of successful, professional artists.
We are also constantly accepting new artwork from our many talented artists to sell. Each piece is unique and extravagant. We can’t wait to share them with you so that you may find that one special artwork that fits you! Here are some of the recent new additions to our gallery:
