The frenetic energy of Bonde’s painterly gestures on mirror-foil are dissident and at times self-destructive.

His gestures are referring simply to the notion of a physical movement that leaves a material residue. For Bonde there is only the beauty of the gesture and its residue and any ‚image‘ is usually compromised because of them.

Expanding the notion of painting onto images, it is perhaps arguable that the brushstrokes themselves are not painted upon the mirror (as an object) but upon the reflection itself.
