      Daniel Bourke

      How should an artist use paint in the age of digital reproduction? Daniel Bourke provides a fresh and interesting answer. He combines organic and digital elements to create contemporary and somewhat disturbing still lifes - all in paint.

      Bourke begins with a traditional still life set-up. He does observational drawings and takes photographs of his subjects. He then stitches, edits and chops in Photoshop until he's achieved a pleasing composition. Finally, he reproduces the image in painstaking oil paint.

      Bourke is equally inspired by the Dutch old masters and contemporary digital artists such as Benjamin Edwards. He says he likes the way paint gives him a personal relationship to the work, and that physical mark making is important to him.

      He is a Central St. Martins graduate, and was awarded the Kate Barton Award from the university.
