Bonita Tabakins Retrospective Galleria

Color For Health tm ... founded because specific colors were the only method to turn Bonita's illness around. Her "Brush Stories" helped bring the viewer into improving their health rhythm. She is currently healing most austistic children after one month of treatment, twice a day. Her goal; heal our warriors and their families. She is a self taught fine and fiber artist since 2000.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Every artist has a focus…a reason for painting. Mine is to imbue my audience with better health on all levels. Many artists embrace color as their calling card, but painting in hues only to showcase their talents. I create the opposite. Each of my creations tells a healing story as a novelist writes. My focus is on other’s well-being - not my needs.

Since age six I’ve been recognized as an artist on a new wave. I create by mixing freshly mortared and mix pigments that have scientifically

reflected health benefits. Knowing that eyes control every cell in our bodies as a scientific fact, I paint, sculpt in fiber and metals, install,

and perform to cause viewers, through their eyes, to experience healthy color coursing through every cell in their body...stimulating their senses.

I embrace installations, wind, heat, ice, textures, fragrances, sound, and performance to augment the viewer’s vision for those suffering

from impaired sight or who are blind. Light Works” is my body of work employing many techniques and multiple thin layers of mainly water color pigments – sometimes soft swirls of wet on wet or glaze on dry; blossoms, trial backs, and veins of paints or luminescent jewels on gold or silver; or flakes of jewels like pearls imbedded in rag paper, someti mes stroking in several holograms creating 2 paintings in one.

Who is Bonita Tabakin-Latterner

Bonita is a native WashingtonDC metro area artist. As in this grand-old-story town, Bonita tells stories through her art work which forms and joins communities. Art was a vehicle for her to dialogue with her environment and others. As a teen and later as an adult, she had the privilege to study with two legends after stiff juries: Pablo Picasso and L. Colbert Dubois. Her mentors were the renowned Tom Rowe (master of the Baroque oil method and egg tempera graphics), and professors at the acclaimed Corcoran Institute: Bill White, and Robert Frost and abstract artist Bill Dutterer. Their influences can still be seen in her personal soft style. Her journey began in smelly colorful oils, but she graduated to other media, sculpture and fashion. As Bonita refined her style, the term “colorist” was a foreign word. She searched for companions in that field, but found colleagues only in The Masters. Influenced by their specific studies, integrating various shades and hues of saturated light compatible with restoring health to the living, she developed her Signature Collection. Bonita earned the privilege of studying with Pablo Picasso who inspired her with his use of color, shape, and abstractionist theories. Her mentors influenced her approach to using large, soft, silken water color layers and use of hues to cause the illusion of paint on silk. Thus Bonita created her Light Works CollectionTM. Bonita’s Heritage CollectionTM takes a “different” look at history and its forms. These images are soft when compared to the realities they contemplate. Because of

the challenges watercolors and egg tempera cause, Bonita paints from small to large, solving technique problems as she creates 2 similar paintings of 2 different sizes. Her work is popular, and this approach is favored among her local and international clients.
