Bonnell has been developing work on a variety of subjects but for many years her terrain has been the domestic sphere. Playing with scale and format she takes everyday objects outside into the landscape to photograph them at monolithic scale. In When domestic meets the wild  bright coloured pan scrubbers are placed on wires across a more traditional landscape shot; for Putting Hills in Holland  jelly and blancmange moulds are piled on top of each other to create leaning towers and in Glowing  luminescent rabbit jelly moulds nestle in the grass. When not working outside often the setting for her works has been her home using food as a material for her sculptures and installations. In her series Everday Dada (2003-5) Bonnell places slices of tinned luncheon meat over bathroom tiles and in the sub-series Scenic Cookery she creates mounds of mash potato, peas and sausages, shaped like iconic landscapes such as Stone Henge.
