Bonnie Neumann has been living in the Bay Area for many years. She is inspired by the
light reflected by water and the traces of movement in water. Since 2009 she has been
making images portraying the surface of the Bay, and of bodies of water in Marin
County, and Lake County, about 100 miles to the north. From automatic and meditative
line drawings, photographs, and found images, patterns are enlarged and made into
various sized silkscreens. She uses a silkscreen process with oil paint, on wood panel and
most recently on Arches oil paper. She employs a series of thin layers of paint and
pattern which creates suffusion and surface tension. The layers are choreographed
between process and contemplation, which determines the composition.
