Artist Biography

Pandora Mond was educated at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford and has painted all of her adult life. Mond lived for many years on Exmoor before returning to her roots in Norfolk.


Mond's inspiration and reference has always been the natural world and even beyond, when she received a fellowship to study extra solar planets with the Astrophysicists at Exeter University.


Mond works in oil and mixed media on canvas, often on a large scale. She has returned again and again to the sea as she feels it seems to present the greatest challenge and seduction. A place of tranquillity and threat, of vastness and of peace.


Pandora Mond's paintings are an abstraction from the material in search of the infinite; a paring down of subject and elimination of obstacles between the painter and the idea, to achieve a clarity and inevitably to be understood. Simonides, the Greek lyric poet describes this perfectly, when he wrote ‘painting is silent poetry and poetry is painting with the gift of speech’.


ARTIST STATEMENT:


“The titles of these paintings come from the names given to moon ‘seas’. The lunar Mariaare large, dark, basaltic plains on Earth’s Moon, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. They were dubbed maria, Latin for "seas", by early astronomers who mistook them for actual seas.


The ambiguity of these names appealed to me, for the paintings do not represent actual seas but rather imagined universal ones. I want them to have an immersive quality and to evoke rather than describe the space. It is for the viewer to find their place within them, which could be a meditation or stimulation. The tension between the beauty and cruelty of the sea, of threat and solace was something I tried to explore in these works.


The large scale of the paintings is critical to their impact and the technique I use of layering thick impasto oil paint with palette knives is very much an organic process, allowing chance rather than description to occur. These seas come from memories and I have moved away from relying on preparatory sketches made by the coast, to simply looking and absorbing the nature of the sea in all its changing spirit. To capture the essence of my subject is what I continually seek to do in my work, in the hope the paintings will speak for themselves.”
