About the Artist

""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, Curator, Farnsworth Museum

The land, bays, skies and islands of the Blue Hill Peninsula, Deer Isle/Stonington, Isle Au Haut, Penobscot Bay and Acadia are my primary subjects. People and interiors in these setting also enter into my work. I am intrigued by the light and abstract patterns that nature provides. In painting, I strive for a color light that emanates from the canvas with a magnet-like pull, and draws us in for a long look.
