Michael H. Bourque

“American artist Michael Bourque’s acrylic paintings are a thought-provoking mixture of abstraction, repetition, and improvisation”, as observed by ARTisSpectrum Magazine. I am widely traveled but have spent my career living and working in Boston. My education includes American University, Pratt Institute and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University.

I have enjoyed a parallel and distinguished career in commercial interior design. I also enjoy photography and my “Art of the Fan” series is part of the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts Library collection.

My years of working with architects has given me a well-trained eye. I often remove perspective from my paintings but love texture and relief. Similarly, I love color and I use it prolifically.

The Agora Gallery observed “Where Bourque’s work breaks out of the ordinary is in the little vignettes and flashes of genius that he allows to peek through the pattern. His pieces are large- scale both in physical size and in the volume of information they contain”.
