ARTmonday: 10 Geometric Portraits by Matthew Bourbon

While browsing one of my favorite art galleries (at least online, since I’ve never actually been there), Kenise Barnes Fine Art in Larchmont, NY, I discovered the work of artist Matthew Bourbon. (I also pulled images from Darke Gallery.)  Bourbon was born in the Bay area, and after college at UC Davis, earned his Masters of Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Bourbon is currently an associate professor in Texas.  He is also an art critic and writer.

His artist’s statement says he is “interested in . . . how information is revealed or obscured” and “how it affects the narrative or possible interpretations of story.” I love the colors and geometric patterns and organic shapes that replace the figures heads or other body parts. It’s portraiture and abstract art in one.
