Hilary Bond

Hilary Bond was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. After attending the Baltimore School for the Arts she went to The Cooper Union and received a BFA in 2007.

Citing Andy Warhol, Willem de Kooning, and Egon Schiele as influences, she creates bold depictions of strong women. Through these images of women, Bond explores contemporary femininity as well as the concept of the artists’ “muse” and how it relates to female identity.

Meditation and movement guide Bond through challenges and are the foundation of her art. She is challenging traditional materials, artmaking, permanence, spontaneity, stillness, and action in her work, while mentally and physically exploring contemporary femininity in her layered paintings.
