Nanette Bourke

Contact Nanette Bourke

Settling in Moyston in 1984, Nanette Bourke is a prominent figure in the Ararat and Grampians arts community, perhaps best known as a member of the ‘Grampians Four’ group of artists. Bourke has been a printmaker since the late 1960s, having studied at the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney, and at art societies and the CAE in Melbourne before relocating to Western Victoria.

Inspired by the woodcuts and linocuts by Melbourne artists of the 1920s and 1930s – Napier Waller, Murray Griffin, and especially Eric Thake – Bourke embraces the sophisticated results that can be achieved in this medium.

Bourke holds a deep affinity with the natural environment, which is integral in her artistic life. Many of the works in this exhibition are inspired by the natural environment of the Grampians. In contrast to the often joyous depictions of Australian native flora, Bourke’s imagery also presents a poignant reminder of humankind’s negative impact on the environment.
