Q&A with Bonnie and Clyde

On the occasion of her new release, Everybody Loves The Sunshine (mini), Bonnie & Clyde answers our burning questions about her new work, her practice, and what's next.

 Everybody Loves The Sunshine (mini)

 

AR: What was the inspiration behind your new print, Everybody Loves The Sunshine (mini)?

 Everybody Loves The Sunshine (mini) is a dreamscape. A snapshot into an imagined life and is based on pure escapism, the power of the landscape, the power of the mind and illusion.

 

AR: Do you see this work as a continuation of previous work or a series, or a new departure in your practice?

My work tends to be one continuation. Even though I thought it was part of a series I believe it’s all a continuation. I like to change around a bit but it is an unfolding.


AR: What does a typical day look like for you?

I work in my studio in town so I am there most of the time. My day is often running the business of being an artist which sometimes involves the creative side of making art ;) I often listen to 6music or lectures by amazing teachers on human potential & energy work and quantum theorists. hehe

 

 

AR: What’s your favourite creative work (artwork, music, play, film, etc)

I love and get inspired by many creative sources. I am fascinated by music and would love to make electronic deep disco but I haven’t got there yet. I love film – recently loved Parasite, Dark Waters, I love Pedro Almodavar films, Wim Wenders, and appreciate their attention to use of environment and sensory harmony.

 

AR: When did you know you wanted to pursue a life in art?

I thought I would be an architect but that was not particularly encouraged because of the 7 years of studying and It was still very much a man’s career really – my work experience was in an architects office and although I loved it, it was full of blokes at their drawing tables apologising to me for their swearing! I realised I was an artist early on but spent a lot of time in the design world leading up to it.

 

 

AR: What did it feel like when you sold your first artwork?

Selling art is a thrill. It never gets boring. I appreciate every sale and it always humbles me. I put energy into making the art – love and energy -  and when it comes back in the form of appreciation and therefore money it is gratifying. Knowing that your vision relates to people is an amazing feeling. 

 

AR: What is your earliest art memory?

Earliest proper art memory is being in the presence of Hockney at the film and photography museum in Bradford. And also visiting the incredible Salts Mill in Bradford. This place really shaped my world.

 

AR: What’s next?

Next project is continuing to get my growing understanding of the universe into my artworks.  It’s important for people to focus on the positive in whatever way they can and if life isn’t the best it can be then daydreaming is a good way to do that.
