“The jumble of daily life awash in natural light keeps me itching to paint: table top, ocean top, city square. We’ve learned that we are not so much human molecules, but bacteria and water, not very different from the next person or our surroundings. Similarly, a painting’s constitution is not separate objects, but is the pieces of color things and spaces divide into, and that, simultaneously, unite. This matrix delights me and informs my paintings.”
Louise Bourne lives on the Blue Hill Peninsula. Her paintings are in public and private collections throughout the world. She has a BFA from Portland School of Art (now Maine College of Art) and an MFA from University of Michigan School of Art and Design.
