Bonante’s work begins with a found object. By locating the marks of the objects prior owners, and then by adding her own mark, she transforms these mundane items into sculpture that evoke a deep and common memory.She is interested in how these things from our daily lives, when altered, can speak to us in such a different voice; and, It is these exchanges of memory and voice that she tries to preserve by capturing them in wax. Bonante graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.
