Cherry Time (Le Temps des cerises) is a well-known song in the French-speaking world that became popular and took on a political meaning during the Paris Commune of 1871. Our interest in that doomed revolution began with the chance discovery of some compelling, if macabre, photographs of the corpses of dead Communards.
Beep (Biennial exhibition of painting) is Wales’s only large scale contemporary international painting exhibition taking place at different venues every two years. This year will see the main Beep exhibition tour from Swansea to Wrexham and include satellite exhibitions, events and residencies in and around Swansea, Wrexham and Cardiff.
The work in this exhibition is an experiment in attempting to find a way to visualise the energy of the Earth; to prove that it exists. Bonada, during making the paintings came to realise that energy is present in so many forms, and the bigger picture became simultaneously impossibly complicated and elegantly simple.
