JONAS BURGERT, Berlin, Germany. He is a painter and sculpture and a master in the Art of splashing of colour and grotesque, Mystical visual activity.
JONAR BURGERT (b. 1969: lives and works in Berlin, Germany). His works could be seen as different plots and theater's scene. Theatre is part of human existence for Burgert; playing a important role in his paintings. play that Burgert considers to be human existence:" man’s need to make sense of his purpose in life. It is a quest that seems inconclusive, but which opens doors to every sphere of reasoning, imagination and desire." Huge canvases are crowded with fantastical figures of different proportions. Some are gigantic, others are as small as infants. There are monkeys and zebras, skeletons and harlequins, Amazons, children, sometimes the painter himself. Exaggerated situations or figures play a hideous game: walls decompose and floors open; at that point is where Burgert reveals agglomeration of bodies or vivid liquid, people wear masks and costumes, war-like paint decorates some of the faces. His paintings make the viewer ask thamselves where is the line between fantasy and reality: what is being a corpse and what is alive if often unclear. There is an overshadow game between life, the human nature itself and death evolving his paintings...
