“Within every exhibition, I perceive each artwork as a potential element of a series or sequence. The painting’s edge is not merely an endpoint but a border connecting multiple works. In this particular series, I have removed the traditional support, opting to place wax-soaked canvases directly on the wall. Whether presented in a series or sequence, the content within each piece can subtly intertwine with another. The narrative refers back to the essence of painting and its enduring symbolism in contemporary culture.” – Jim Bourke

Jim Bourke is a Toronto-based figurative painter. The wax medium of encaustic informs his art. His works are bold, capturing the slightest gestures and nuances of the hand. Each painting is a series of decisions and revisions, acting as an independent process that reveals the visible traces of its construction. He has studied fine art at York University and graduated from OCA(D), and computer animation at Sheridan College. He has been a member of the artist collective Propeller Art Gallery, and is an active member of the Red Head artist collective. He has won awards in numerous juried exhibitions, including OSA, TOAE, Mississauga Art Gallery, and the RCA.

VenueThe Red Head Gallery
The Red Head Gallery
The Red Head Gallery was established in 1990 and is Toronto’s most enduring collectively run art gallery. It has stood the test of time as an exhibition space as well as a collective where critically engaged, highly productive artists enjoy curatorial control over the presentation of their work. Over the past two decades more than 100 artists have been part of The Red Head Gallery and have produced over 200 exhibitions.
There are two accessible entrances to 401 Richmond. At the northwest corner of the building, a ramp leads upward from the sidewalk to an automatic entrance onto the building’s main floor that measures 34″ wide, and with a lip that measures 1″ high. The other entrance at the northeast corner is less evident but equally, if not more, accessible. The automatic door measures 34″ wide and inside has a gradual ramp downwards which leads towards the elevators.
