Statement

Michael "MAGO" Berger’s work is a fusion of scientific and artistic expression. His canvases are unique - Berger formed the term Transformable ART for his technique of combining painting and sculpture to form reliefs which are not static but may change their appearance through manual interaction with the viewer.  The compositions often feature spheres, themselves resembling planets, or rocks which by means of hidden magnets can be rearranged by the spectator to create a work constantly in flux and never the same. This reflects his background as a geologist and geochemist. Berger uses intense, positive colors that invite the viewer in. His broad, generous brushstrokes build up backgrounds with a smooth, almost dreamy quality that heightens the relief of the moveable objects, placing them in an unreal world from which they beckon.
