Bonnie Marin (b: 1965 , The Pas, MB) Bonnie Marin is a Winnipeg-based artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Manitoba. She works in a variety of mediums including sculpture, collage, painting, and artist books.
Marin's work is characterized by her incredible sensitivity to the technique of assemblage through which she creates unsettling images that are mixed with her very sardonic and wry sense of humour. Marin offers up the darker side of humanity for one to contemplate. Her works shift between nightmarish episodes to pseudo sexual fantasies. She is truly a "master" at combining the unexpected with the familiar, and provides the viewer the opportunity to deliciously devour the taboos they evoke. The end results compel one to stare, usually provoking fits of uncomfortable laughter.
Marin’s work has been shown in various cities throughout North America, and can be found in public collections such as The Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Glenbow Museum and in private collections as far off as London, UK and Hong Kong. Over the course of her career she has received several grants for her work from the Manitoba Arts Council and Winnipeg Arts Council. She was a 2008/2009 Mentor with MAWA (Mentoring Artists for Women's Art).
