Biography

In bold, acrylic line paintings, Hilary Bond depicts the heads and torsos of women, often repeating the image in overlapping compositions. Drawing from Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and American culture, Bond takes Kate Moss as the muse for much of her work, rendering her image in a bright palette of pink, yellow, orange, and blue monochromes. “I was searching for inspiring female figures and a female ideal, archetype, and muse,” she has said. “I want my paintings to be mysterious, beautiful, assertive, and to have their own inner dialog.” Bond cites Willem de Kooning, Egon Schiele, Andy Warhol, and Edouard Manet’s Olympia (1863) as influences on her work.
