Statement

Jonas Burgert is a German painter known for creating monumental works composed of figurative apparitions and dramatic contrasts of colour. Seemingly fluorescent areas glow amidst a backdrop of gray and pale hues, absorbing the spectator inside the canvas. What Burgert witnesses seems to be the drama of a new world order.

Burgert’s inspirations are multiple and derived from diverse ideologies and cultures. They come from post cards, literature or images of the Indian Holi Festival of Colours, or from the artist’s voyage to Egypt, where he visited the remnants of its ancient culture. Certainly, a major source of inspiration lies in art history. It has often been said that Burgert’s work picks up on strands of Late Renaissance thought, particularly the Mannerist’s love of the grotesque and the curious, of harsh and crass colour disparities and of an exaggerated, ‘unnatural’ style. Other notable inspirations are Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, El Greco, Tintoretto, Poussin and Max Beckmann.
