Bunnie ‘Bonnie’ Reiss creates to bring together. Materials, community, cultures, experiences, the past and the present, are all part of her visual catalog. She wishes to map out unusual lives, find hidden and forgotten places, build a unique visual history, and weave it all together as one. She is a natural storyteller, time-traveler and lover of all that is us, and she lives in a world filled with magic and imagination.
Often traveling several months out of the year, Bunnie’s brain is constantly filling with new ideas and skill sets. She is fearless in her making and wishes to create spaces and paint walls where people feel safe and can imagine a world that is beautiful and gentle. She works both solo and with other artists from around the world. When she returns home to Los Angeles, she spends her days unwinding what she has uncovered in both her art practice and the classes she teaches.
In a peculiar meeting of friendship and styles, our all chrome aficionado, KEMS, welcomed a visit from Parisian good-guy GOMER in April. He arrived as Boston’s winter was going the way of the groundhog, the locals hoping it wouldn’t see its shadow and curse them with another six weeks of winter. Rather than stay to find out, the duo loaded up an unassuming rently with Lak, and clocked miles on the dash for an extended week long USA-only spraycation. After being turned away from the Canadian border, KEMS and GOMER travelled 2000 miles, touching up abandos and local spots in random towns through-out New England and New York. Nine days, a helluvalotta Lak and good times. Enjoy.
