A bit about Jo Bondy (1937 - 2015):
A savant who marched to the beat of her own drum, Jo Bondy, spent much of her life as an art teacher, sculptor and artist. Having studied in St Albans, she chose to teach first in Hertfordshire and then later in Barnet. During the 70s Jo worked on her sculptures which were often exhibited at Nicholas Treadwell's gallery on Chiltern Street. Known for its realist work, Treadwell was founder of the 'Superhumanism' art movement, defined as an "art of urban living, conveyed in a vivid and accessible way". His shows evoked strong reactions for their boundary-pushing content and Jo's sculptures were certainly no less progressive. Her work was often produced inside or on top of boxes, ranging in size from cigar boxes to grandmother clocks. By the late 90's Bondy had retired and often visited a small house she owned in rural France. It was during this time that she drew many of her landscapes and life drawings. She often used sugar paper, and where most would draw upon it with charcoal or chalk, Jo favoured crayons and coloured pencils. This added to the texture, detail and depth, creating layers of richness and a further dimension to her drawings. Jo died in 2015 leaving behind a body of work that captures not only her sense of adventure but also her gift for creative expression.
