David Bondar – “For the Birds”

December 5 – 20, 2013

My work is dominated by self portraiture.  I work from the mirror and occasional photo but lately I have been creating my likeness through memory.

Symbols dictate the work and help me organize my subject matter that includes dreams, family, relationships and death.  Birds have repeatedly appeared after a loved one’s passing or some memorable event.  Doors, windows and interiors coincide with work based on family experiences and relationships.  Flowers play a role as well and symbolize the fragility of my world.  I sometimes travel into dark places when creating this work. But, this is countered by many wonderful lapses of levity.
