Bonny Novesky creates unusual acrylic collage on heavy arches paper without using a press. Each piece is unique and although she can control the color used, the finished product is often a surprise. The works on paper are then frequently incorporated on canvas to create large colorful, structural abstracts.
Novesky’s work has been greatly influenced by her travels to Asia, the structures of Tibetan temples, the ruins of Angkor Wat, the patterns of Japan and the colors of Nepal and India. Jewel tones such as amber’s, jades and aquamarines are incorporated into her paintings for a rich timeless effect.
The artist grew up in the Midwest and was a fine arts major at the University of Wisconsin studying under Harold Altman. She continued her education with advanced classes at Layton School of Art in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her paintings are widely collected and hang in prominent private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
