Louise Bourne

 

 

“Louise Bourne’s paintings offer a visceral response to the physical world.  They are deeply emotive, felt responses to the artist’s immediate surroundings.  Light, atmosphere, elements of the landscape, corners of sunny porches, the interior of the studio – wherever she turns her keen eye and probing brush, we are rewarded with paintings that reflect her deep intelligence and curiosity about the world.  Like the paintings of Fairfield Porter, Bourne’s paintings make us care about the most humble and yet most universal of subjects, our everyday lives.”        Suzette McAvoy, Director, Center for Maine Contemporary Art
