Inspired by ancient artifacts, tribal adornments, and traditional textiles, Bonnie Clark’s contemporary narrative weavings are meditations on the mysteries of life and the beauty that surrounds us every day.
Though Bonnie primarily works in fibers, her training in a variety of artistic mediums and techniques -- mask making, printmaking, collage, assemblage, ceramics, polymer clay, and textiles -- influences her practice. Each Soul Artifact explores age-old cultural themes relating to the search for community and home, personal empowerment, and transformation.
Her latest Soul Artifacts series, Magic in the Desert: Santa Fe Reflections, pays homage to the rich history and culture of New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment. The mystique of Santa Fe is captured in the rich colors and each weaving tells the story of life in the City Different.
Bonnie attended the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She currently lives and works in Santa Fe, NM and Asheville, NC.
