— Jim Bond CLOSEOPEN
Perth born Jim Bond was brought up surrounded by art for his mother is well-known painter Marj Bond, but he is very clearly his own man. Primarily Bond is a sculptor; often using copper and steel to create skeletal work that feels as fragile and vulnerable as the human body. He may also incorporate letters or numbers into it, suggesting thought-DNA, software behind the hardware. Bond is also a kinetic artist creating work such as “blink,” an eyeball that blinks when you look at it, as well as larger mechanical museum pieces.
Bond has just finished a major commission for Cambridge university and has exhibited widely throughout the UK and beyond.
