Bridget O'rourke Artist Bio:

Born on September 16, 1984 in Philadelphia, PA. The artists whom I admire most, Willem de Kooning, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Philip Guston, Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler, all have played a significant role in my development as an artist. These artists worked fearlessly. Painting was their redemption against hardship. Painting was as a reminder that, despite all of the ugliness, there was still something beautiful left in this world. Painting has given them a sense of joy. As important as my influences are, I know I must be true to myself in my work. Once I allow this happen, the work just flows. Philip Guston once said, "When you're in the studio painting, there are a lot of people in there with you - your teachers, friends, painters from history, critics... and one by one if you're really painting, they walk out. And if you're really painting YOU walk out." So, now, I am really painting, and everyone is in there with me. It is wonderful feeling and it is something that I never want to let go. Painting is my happiness.
