Malyn Bonayog will arouse your curiosity in her complex multi-layering of apparently simple lines on her canvases, which amazingly form several dissimulated images of urban landscapes and personalities that could only be seen separately from different angles. In viewing Bonayog’s work standing dead center, the viewer may find her images baffling at first, but proceeding to view it from different angles; he would then see how she gently reminds us of our sometimes-complacent perception of ordinary things which have significant value to all of us. Within Bonayogs’s work is a classic illusion that will trick your eyes and challenge your mind to understand her tapestry.
