Kevin Bourgeois

b. 1969 Orlando, Florida, USA
Lives and works in New York

With incredible dexterity in graphite drawing, Bourgeois creates layers of images of human figures, often juxtaposed with symbolism and passages from poems by Allen Ginsberg, Arthur Rimbaud, Richard Brautigan and Hakim Bey.

According to the artist, his art is 'photorealism merged with pop culture symbolism', yet open to the ambiguity and different interpretations. For example, his Windows of a Thousand Blind Eyes, 2003 depicts disparate images of human bodies, machine parts and a snake. Crosshair lines overlay the central image of a baby's face with his right eye emptied. Undoubtedly, a primary source of this work is the famous poem by Allen Ginsberg, Howl, 1956. Howl is a rant on materialism and the malaise of society: in this poem, the decadent civilization is personified as Moloch, a pagan god to whom children are sacrificed.

However, Bourgeois art is not a simple illustration of literary source. Rather, his works encourage the beholder to decipher various codes and symbols according to their own encounters with them.

Bourgeois has exhibited extensively in Florida and New York.
