Meri Bourgard
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Cobble Hill



ARTIST STATEMENT: Color often escapes boundaries and freely flows through the images. I take advantage of spontaneous effects and frequently mix media in non-traditional ways. Emerging images come and go until the composition is resolved. I begin the search for found images without a preconception of subject. There is a sense of anxiety and mystery in not knowing what the image will be until it reveals itself; I have trust that images will appear. Alternating between abstract mark-making and a focused search for content, I intuitively erase and draw or paint a dense web of strokes. This spatial scaffolding ultimately suggests recognizable form. In the completed work, a gradual disclosure of image is revealed on successively deeper levels. The dynamic between figures is explored as though captured in a glimpse of memory or dream. Figures caught in performing everyday tasks express timeless aspects of the human experience.
