Gord Bond grounds his artistic practice in his love of painting. Despite the outwardly figurative and representational appearance of his works, Bond considers his practice as predominantly abstract.
Through a responsive approach, the forms in Bond’s works become the product of compositional decisions made intuitively throughout the painting process while their surfaces reflect his dedication to create interesting textures and play with colour. Through intentional playfulness and humour, Bond wishes to create animated paintings that connect with a wide breadth of viewers.
Bond holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from McMaster University, Hamilton, and a Masters of Fine Art from York University, Toronto. His work is found in the public collection of McMaster University and private collections across Canada and internationally in the United States and United Kingdom.
