About Billie BondBillie Bond is a figurative sculptor who explores the human form through social and cultural identity, capturing a sensitivity that relates closely to her own experiences of life. As a mother, aspects in the changes of motherhood stimulate her strong feelings of concerns in an ageing population of first-time mothers. Billie continues to experiment with materials and processes to achieve highly crafted objects of aesthetic beauty.

Artist Statement of Billie BondMy intent is to create human figurative works that are aesthetically engaging with social, romantic and realistic qualities. My narrative questions cultural and consumer identity and explores influencing factors.
It is important for me that modern technology, as well as traditional materials and methods, are used in the creative process.
My work examines how social and political history changes expected ideologies and the effect it has had on identity.

Influences / Inspiration of Billie BondI have been inspired by broken ancient artefacts and forgotten civilizations and have used this notion as a vehicle to express my concerns of changing identity. I also use this notion to present my work as a sign of decay in a social context and to express the need for change.
