Bourke’s practice expands multiple disciplines but focusses primarily on painting. Dropping out of art school to parent three children, Bourke has used social media platforms to reenergise her career and position her as one of Australia’s most up and coming and in demand artists. Whilst having exhibited widely in Australia this will be Bourke’s first solo exhibition in Melbourne.
The faces I paint are an ongoing project. When alone in my studio I’m not working to paint the stranger. Rather, I’m seeking to commune with the tangible: family, friends and foes. Ever present, or long gone these paintings are portraits of seminal people in my life. Good, bad and ugly they shadow me. I’m in awe and hyper aware of their presence.
I see these works hung en masse in a never ending wall of snapshots. They are tribe and community, a rumour I heard once, a tapestry, ghosts.
