About

Bonnie Maygarden is a multimedia artist who received her MFA in Studio Arts from Tulane University in 2014. The destruction of Hurricane Katrina caused her to take leave of New Orleans to pursue art. She attended Pratt Institute in New York, where she received her Bachelor's of Fine Arts in 2010. Her work has been featured in exhibitions both nationally and internationally in various museums, galleries and alternative venues including: Université Lumière Lyons (Lyons, France), Pratt Institute, Icosahedron Gallery (New York City), East Hall Gallery (Brooklyn), SALTWORKS (Atlanta), The Front (New Orleans) and New Orleans Creative Center for the Arts. Several notable publications have featured Maygarden’s work; including, Gambit Weekly, NOLA DEFENDER, and INVADE NOLA. Curator and art critic Tori Bush featured Maygarden’s Master’s thesis exhibition “Hyper Real” in her May 2013 Artist Spotlight. She also received an honorable mention for her work in UNO Visual Arts Leagues Juried Exhibition in 2013 from Miranda Lash, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Her work was reviewed in ArtForum and Burnaway for her inclusion in “Staring at the Sun” curated by Craig Drennan. Her paintings were also featured in New American Paintings (No. 112, June/July Issue) concurrently with her solo exhibition at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery entitled “Desert of the Real”. Her work was included in the Ogden Museum of Southern Art’s third annual LA Contemporary Juried Exhibition, which premiered on Whitney White Linen Night 2014. Maygarden has been exhibited nationally at art fairs including: Miami Project for Art Basel Miami Beach, Texas Contemporary, Art Market San Francisco, and is slated to be on view at the Seattle Art Fair in August 2015. Her work appears in the collections of LACMA curator Franklin Sirmans (Los Angeles), private collectors Lester Marks (Houston) and Susan and Ralph Brennan (New Orleans), and corporate collections of Advantage Capital Management Corporation and RPM Casting. Maygarden has been commissioned for Hollywood feature films by several production companies including: ABC Studios, Flashfire Productions, Georgia Film Fund Seven, Abby Normal Pictures, Lamb Productions and The Goats, LLC. artist statement "I am interested in making works that are informed by and react to a culture defined by a digital experience. My work references familiar technology-created images, such as photography, x-rays, or Photoshop filters, yet are created only using the meticulous illusion of paint. Through referencing the digital image I am able to make paintings that walk the line between something and nothing, that both play to our expectations of the disposable contemporary image and the valued tradition of the handmade."
