With lavish imagination and technical skill, Bourdon Brindille creates images and sculptures that are playful, absurd, otherworldly and awash with ideas drawn from the pains and pleasures of life.
Bourdon has suffered from Art ever since he was a small child.
He has pursued a cure for this malady ever since through many different types of media—unfortunately relying on heavier and heavier doses of Art each day just to get by.
Having suffered terribly for years with a compulsive urge to draw, he was lured to University where professionals taught him how to live with this condition more wholesomely. Whilst there, he began a long love affair with computer-manipulated art and despite seeing many other media before and since, continues to hold a love for the immediacy and control that this medium offers.
Bourdon Brindille was released from Falmouth University with a First Class Honours Degree in Illustration in 2010 and has since been able to enjoy something of a normal life.
Creating imagery and textures through an abundance of traditional media Bourdon then manipulates these through computer programs to create his wall-hung images, all as a cathartic means of release for his artistic ailments.
Despite attempts to rein in his Art use, he has developed an insatiable love for sculpting over the years and uses predominately wood, which is carved, turned and cut to nail down his imagination.
Bourdon has had a number of joint and solo shows where his work can be more readily appreciated ‘in the flesh’ and draw the viewer to get lost in his fevered, fetid imagination for a short while.
Unfortunately, Bourdon Brindille has to live in it full-time.
The search for a cure continues . . .
