Bruner & Bondi: Suspicious Evidence @ RTZVegas

Two insatiable Las Vegas art makers, Ginger Bruner and Anthony Bondi, team up for an exhibition, Suspicious Evidence, opening Thursday, September 5, 6:00 - 9:00 pm, at RTZvegas, 1017 S. First Street. The exhibition will feature photographs drawn from each artist's expansive body of work. Individually and together the photographs reveal a keen interest in producing images of environments for which documentation and perception are suspect.

Bruner's suite of images, exhibited for the first time, present a series of diffused and abstracted objects charged by their luminescence and intensity of color. The artist has long held that "it is always about the light," and these new photographs of somewhat ordinary objects encountered in the daily environment possess an ambiguity of visual cues: it is a call to the viewer for further scrutiny and examination.

Bondi's work is comprised of nine photographs of interactive screen sets, a series of sculptures he has has constructed over many years. A number of photographs document the dizzying still life topography of the constructions. Others capture an iconic female figure "in the flesh" enmeshed in both the visual and physical circuitries of the screens. Bondi's narrative is one of plasticity and artifice tempered by a gravitas informed, as he says " by a Vegas goosing of the images."

Ginger Bruner and Anthony Bondi have been an integral and highly visible part of the local arts community for many years. Bruner, a musician and radio producer, has for the past year served as the lead photographer for Our Las Vegas, The Daily Frame, an online public art project sponsored by the Las Vegas Arts Commission. Bondi has been engaged in the local arts scene for almost two decades. Many of his enigmatic assemblages were created for the Burning Man festival and later were installed as part of First Friday. A number of his constructions will be included in the exhibition.
