Biography Douglas Bourgeois

Douglas Bourgeois was born in Saint Amant, Louisiana, and the intense
character of Southern landscape and culture is a lingering component in
his work. Bourgeois finds inspiration and influence from biographical
fantasies, tributes to pop icons, discarded paper media, religious
iconography and the mysterious life of objects.
As a child, he attended
Catholic school and had once intended to become a priest, but rock and
roll music gained popularity around the same time, influencing him to
alter his career choice. Themes of music and religion play out equally
in his work. Bourgeois' early style was influenced by the visionary
outsider artists and the raw expressive extravagance of Chicago Imagism.
