Elena Bond’s Inspiration For Her Ocean & Beach Series

Bond who lives very close to the beach goes out every morning to capture the movement; the speed and vitality of the ocean, the direction, and power of the water and waves, and the change of light in the clouds as these aspects all contribute to the creation and atmosphere of her work. But she is not satisfied merely documenting the physical world she strives to paint the effect of these natural elements on our psyches. Looking at her art, the experience of nature is so intense that you find yourself in the middle of that ocean, beach, or landscape. This makes viewing her work a uniquely personal experience that envelops and engages the viewer in a deep and satisfying way.
