"I take time to roam the Eastern States' forests scouting for that special place-an out of the way valley, a hidden waterfall in an untouched landscape, where you can feel the timelessness of ecosystems in perfect balance. I paint 'en plein air,' sketch, or take a photograph and then paint a larger picture in my studio. My intention is to capture and render the spirit of the place with minimal interpretation."
Silvère Boureau attended the Ecole Nationale Supérieure in France, where his work began in expressionist painting of the human form. Boureau changed his vision of painting with the discovery of the American landscape. He draws inspiration from the wilderness, with experiences such as hiking in the Adirondack Mountains and the Grand Canyon.
Boureau's work has been featured in many solo and group exhibitions. Additionally, his artwork is part of many corporate collections, such as Tiffany & Co., Mc Graw Hill publishing Co., and House Beautiful Magazine. He has painted numerous commissioned murals and paintings for private residences throughout the United States and France. Boureau was featured in the Home & Garden Television (HGTV) show Modern Masters. He has been a resident of Yardley since the 1980s.
