Matthew Bourbon

Matthew Bourbon  A Woman Determined  2014  acrylic on canvas  24" x 24"

Matthew Bourbon is a painter and educator working in Texas. His forth coming exhibition of paintings at Avis Frank Gallery in Houston should be exceptional. I may be a bit prejudiced since I own one of his smaller works but his talent is not just in his paint handling. He is a thoughtful and erudite writer and teacher. In the statement for the exhibition I came across a sentence that exemplified his intensions. He was talking about what to paint and why he paints when he said "the paradox of the interconnectedness of all things". Clearly, this is what most of us strive for in our work- to understand the paradox of the interconnectedness of things.
