Human Landscapes

The Human Landscapes oil paintings is a series of full scale figures that examine the human form in all it’s past and present interpretations. The artist statement is in the form of a modern haiku.


Freed from myth, drifts in romance

lust, abstraction…pose

waves undulating


As an environmentally friendly artist, Jyl Bonaguro’s paintings are stretched on archival belgian linen, mounted on wood and the oil paint is carefully made by hand in small batches from ground pigment powders and linseed oil.
