BONNIE STONE, Bareback Rider
BONNIE STONE, Three Women and Falling Needles

The Tobey C. Moss Gallery is delighted to offer BONNIE STONE’s exquisite,  jewel-like watercolor paintings.  Stone’s intimate visual narratives capture scenes of women in whirlwind action and docile domesticity.  Throughout, her work has wit and humor that reveal the artist’s vivacious personality!

Judaic themes run through much of Stone’s work, a nod to her heritage and in homage to Marc Chagall.  Hebrew calligraphy, prayer shawls and Torah scrolls are woven into several works, including Game of Chance and Voyager.  The artist employs eccentric bird’s eye views of complex patterns and figuration.

Whether Stone depicts Eastern European or African American women, her work encompasses universal themes of the journey of women in Bareback Rider and Tabletop Flight, quilting in Polka Dottie’s Legacy and marital relationships in The Last Word.  In Esther’s Tea Tray Revisited, the artist depicts a serene woman of the shtetl in the midst of a serving crisis...her tea tray has been upset; tea is spilling, the saucer has cracked - and, in the background, tables and chairs, laundry hanging on a line, an apron are all flying through the air!  The changing roles of women, a phenomenon that is common to all women around the globe,  is revealed in this and many of Bonnie Stone’s paintings.

Bonnie Stone resides in Northern California.  She studied art and art education at the University of Illinois and at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  Stone is also a curator, educator and illustrator of limited edition books.  Her work appears in collections around the country.

Bonnie Stone presents the viewer with intellectual puzzles...they challenge the imagination!
