Interact is pleased to announce the upcoming opening of Those Were the Days!, a solo exhibition by Bonnie Thorne at Interact Gallery.
Bonnie Thorne (b. 1951), a painter who came to the discipline in her sixties, takes a loose, gestural approach, giving her work an easy lightheartedness that reflects the artist’s own effervescence. “I like to see people smile,” she says.
Thorne’s narrative paintings playfully explore past and present, reality and fantasy, referencing elements of pop culture, personal history, and nostalgia. Her work is an array of eccentric portraits, quiet interiors, busy park scenes, and famous bands reimagined. Mischievous dogs, human-like cats, and nursery rhyme reboots. Rock star tributes, coffee dates, birthday parties, and lighthearted city scenes.
