'Lovely Sweet Divine' by Michael Bond
24 October - 1 November 2021
Lovely Sweet Divine. The words used to describe all that we hold to be beautiful.
The idea for the Lovely Sweet Divine Exhibition came to be after Michael listened to a playlist put together by a dear friend of his. The kind of musical compilation that makes you feel something good and brings on an overwhelming sense of inspiration. Michael had the same desire for this body of work, focusing his creative energy to bring his feelings of joy, beauty and inspiration to those who would view what he had laid down on canvas.
This series of works were created with many layers, with every piece resembling thoughts and ideas that the artist interprets as beautiful.
"At first, the process was spontaneous and gestural. Areas in the early stages may be eventually covered over or obscured but so it is in life, sometimes beauty is veiled or hidden.”
With all his work, Michael leaves the interpretation to the viewer, never expecting; but hoping they will catch a glimpse of what he sees as Lovely Sweet Divine!
