I am honored to have been chosen for inclusion both in the City of Seattle’s permanent collection, and to have my work chosen out of thousands of applying artists, both from the US and internationally, to be showcased in its public art photomural project.
The three images, Life in the North, are from Alaska, Greenland, and Svalbard.
Hendrix at Home was chosen from the city’s once every five year open call seeking new art for its permanent collection.
Hendrix at Home: Painter and photographer, Bourne explores the concept of landscape as a liminal space, investigating the limits of experience based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, these still moments in time are meant to conjure a mysterious realm.
These photos establish a link between the fact of the landscape, and that imagined by the artist to guide the viewer into concrete questions of change and expectation. By experimenting with aleatoric processes, she formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious process of composition that is behind the seemingly random works. The thought processes are private, highly subjective and unfiltered in their references to dream worlds..
Her works feature coincidental, accidental, and unexpected connections which combine unrelated aspects leading to surprising analogies.
