Bond is influenced by nature and the cycle of life and decay. Decline and regeneration, in human life as well as the natural world, are her main subjects. Waste dumps, mudslides, the aftermath of an earthquake or a bomb, and the hovering crows over it all are here, yet her work has great beauty. Perhaps it's the traditional relief printing techniques, which give these prints their sense of honesty and timelessness.
Bond collected discarded wood from around London for a series of woodcuts called 'Cutting London', creating images of crows and foxes from pieces of scaffolding. Artist residencies in China, Denmark and the US have all left their mark on her work, too. Look out in particular for her portraits of families living in unusual situations in the Chinese countryside.
Bond has an MA in Fine Art from the University of East London. Her work has been shown in the UK and US, and is part of collections in America, Italy, China, Australia and the UK. A large Bond linocut is on permanent display in the print room at the University of East London.
