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.
