The famed artist is a Louisiana native known for his intricate paintings, collages, and sculptures. He has been called a “Visionary Imagist” by New Orleans critic, D. Eric Bookhardt and “Louisiana’s leading fantasy-based realist painter” by Isabelle Loring Winallace in an article in Art in America. His work has also been described as magical realism. Bourgeois, himself, has been noted as referring to his work as figurative pieces that tell a story, and he is thrilled for the opportunity to share insight into his work with a live audience at this gallery talk and reception.
