The Shape of Your Laughter - 60 x 36 Oil on Canvas
by Paul Bond
Award-winning artist Paul David Bond Pesqueira was born in 1964 in Guadalajara, Mexico, and currently lives and works in Southern California. His deeply symbolic paintings draw from the Latin American genre of Magic Realism, where magical elements are blended into a realistic atmosphere in order to access a deeper understanding of reality. Bond?s art illuminates a dreamlike world where anything and everything is possible. His gift is the ability to juxtapose and rearrange common elements in order to translate universal spiritual or metaphysical ideas. Sometimes they are simply uplifting illusions expressing the whimsical, surreal and fantastic side of life. Always, they are soothing visual meditations that delight the imagination and stir the soul.
Bond's work has won numerous awards and been featured in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and cultural centers around the country, including the Gateway Museum in Farmington, New Mexico; William DeBilzan Gallery in Santa Fe, NM; Magidson Gallery in Aspen, CO; Lu Martin Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA; Haro Gallery in Culver City, CA; Evocative Arts Gallery in Palm Springs, CA; CA; Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel, CA; and The San Diego Art Institute. His work is in private and corporate collections, including Hotel Hershey in Hershey, PA and PB&J Restaurants, Wichita, KS.
