John Bonick

John Bonick, a Chicago native, currently lives and works in Napa Valley.  The natural and agricultural growth that surrounds him informs his work and reflects his overall fascination with connection and flow.  “The growth here is ubiquitous,” he says.  “From gorgeous gardens to hillside vineyards, the shoots and stems, the reaches of the vines and the branches of the river all reinforce the imagery -- natural conduits of energy, elemental forms in the field of all possibilities.”
