Weston Gallery Presents Different View of War on Terrorism…

Linda Bond’s solo show “Pause”  presents viewers with portraits mainly based on photographs from newspaper stories about the war. “- Boston Globe West

According to Wikipedia, gunpowder  was discovered in China in the 9th century by” Taoist monks-alchemists searching for an elixir of immortality.”

In many ways gunpowder, certainly depending upon who’s using it, does have an impact on one’s immortality.

Weston artist Linda Bond’s 'Volunteer' is among her works, drawn in gunpowder, on exhibit at Thompson Gallery in Weston.

Gunpowder also represents the possibility of combustion; being on the edge of something that could create a seismic shift in life as we know it.

So perhaps Linda Bond’s use of gunpowder as her artistic medium of choice, speaks volumes about the lives of her subjects, who in some way, are all part of the war on terrorism.

Local Weston artist Bond uses photographs from “newspaper stories about the war” as her inspiration. The grainy newsprint photos evoke the stark reality of war; at least at that specific moment in time.  Bond captures images that ultimately depict the role of human nature in conflict.

And sometimes it is the observers who find themselves in conflict.  Bond’s portraits aren’t always what they appear to be.  Innocence and evil sometimes aren’t apparent to the eye.  The vision may not be the reality

The Thompson Gallery at the Cambridge School in Weston is hosting Linda Bond’s art show “Pause” through November 6, 2008.
