Bonnie Marin

What are you scared of?


Friday January 18 to Friday March 1, 2013


Collage artist extraordinaire, Bonnie Marin’s most recent series combines humour and the grotesque that titillates and teases with our inner most desires and hidden, secret fears. What are you scared of? highlights recently made works on paper, wax reliefs and multi-faceted sculptures, all which pull on deep-rooted anxieties and often unacknowledged tensions of contemporary living.


Bonnie Marin is a Winnipeg-based artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Manitoba. She works in a variety of mediums including sculpture, collage, painting, and artist books. Her work has been shown in various cities throughout North America, and can be found in public collections such as the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Canada Council Art Bank and the Glenbow Museum and in numerous private collections. Over the course of her career she has received several grants for her work from the Manitoba Arts Council and Winnipeg Arts Council. Marin’s work has recently been featured at Pug In ICA in the Winter Kept Us Warm chapter of the My Winnipeg exhibition which was earlier mounted in France in the summer of 2011.
