I believe that art is for everyone, but many of us are tired of the mass produced, the disposable and the predictable. so I don't sell my work wholesale. This means you are unlikely to find your favourite piece on your neighbour's wall.
Art can bewitch you; it is evocative and often provokes strong feelings. My wish is that when you look at my work a story unfolds that is unique to you
I offer multi-layered, ethereal Giclee art prints, framed prints, greetings cards and one off pieces, even the occasional enamel mug (just add hot chocolate & put on a pair of warm, woolly socks)
All of my pieces mounted onto cradle board and waxed are unique due to the encaustic process delivering different results.
You might also be pleased to know that I chose to work with a printer who can offer the highest quality Giclee printing
Recent Review by 'A Year in the Country'
A while ago I came across Lisa Bond’s photographic art and initially on a first guick glance, without reading anything about it and having seen only a few pieces of her work, I thought they were a form of illustration, when in fact they are created in part through, I think, collaging photographs, in camera techniques and possibly also some illustration.
There is an interesting layering and interweaving of atmospheres in the images; they capture the beauty of rural areas but are not merely traditional images of it, rather they create an often haunted landscape that is both entrancing and at times subtly, quietly unsettling.
There is also a textural quality to them which, while they have their own character, puts me in mind here and there of some of the work that graphic designer Vaughan Oliver and photographer/filmmaker Nigel Grierson did between 1983-1988, often for the 4AD record label.
Many of the images are available as very reasonably priced gicleé prints (i.e. they are printed with archival and fade resistant inks), fine art cards, tea cups (yes please!) and, in a manner that seems wonderfully incongruous and a coming together of different worlds, phone and tablet cases.
I'm Lisa Bond,
as an award winning photographer and lover of the 'other', I explore our relationship with nature and our sense of place. My emphasis is on intimacy; creating multi-layered visual stories to evoke memories of place, by using several creative in camera and editing techniques.
I want my work to reflect my interactions with the world – the ethereal, and the bewitching. My tendency is to sway to the dark side, whilst loving the light.
My multimedia work enables me to create unique pieces of art, taking my photography to another level using hand & digitally painted elements, encaustic wax and other mediums to create the finished piece.
