About Joe Bourne

My paintings reflect my fascination with color, shapes and texture. I love working with bees wax and various acrylic gels to build three-dimensionality and l like to incorporate ornamental elements, or copper and steel metal pieces in my artwork.

Depending upon subject and mood, I paint with acrylic on canvas, or encaustic (beeswax) on birch starting with an inspiration or a definite idea and from time to time I will just pick a color at random and begin and see what evolves.

Born in Cambridge, Mass, I relocated to the Netherlands in 1975 where I performed as a Jazz and Pop music vocalist.

My work as a vocalist presented me with the opportunities to travel worldwide allowing me to be exposed to various cultures and visual art masters.

In the mid-nineties, while on a cruise ship where I was the featured performer sailing between Manaus, (a city in north-western Brazil) and Cape Town, South Africa, I took part in a watercolour workshop. From that moment on one will find me with a paint-brush in one hand and microphone in the other.

My subject matter for painting is much like my music repertoire and myself, extremly varied. Many of my paintings have been inspired by my music, my various world travels and nature.

Since moving to the southwest, I derive new inspiration from the forms and rhythms of deserts, mountains, big skies and canyons.
