JONAS

BURGERT

Jonas Burgert

b. 1969 Berlin, Germany

 

Jonas Burgert paints a stage every time that he lifts his brush: with every stroke, with every composition. His works depict the inexhaustible theatre 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. Oversized canvases are crowded with fantastical figures of different proportions. Jonas Burgert graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Berlin, in 1996 and consecutively studied for a postgraduate title (Meisterschueler) under Professor Dieter Hacker in Berlin.

 

Since 1998, his work has been on view in numerous group shows around the world, including Geschichtenerzaehler at Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg (2003), and Triumph of Painting Part VI at London’s Saatchi Gallery (2006). Since 2006 Burgert’s work has been on view in solo exhibitions around the world, including: Sinn frisst, Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck, Germany (2020); Ein Klang Lang, Tang Contemporary Art, Hong Kong (2019); ZEITLAICH, Blain|Southern Berlin, DE (2017); Schutt und Futter, Hannover Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover, DE (2013); Jonas Burgert: Lebendversuch, Kunsthalle Tübingen, DE (2010 - 2011); Jonas Burgert: Hitting every head, Haunch of Venison, London, UK (2009) and Jonas Burgert: Enigmatic Narrative, Victoria H. Myhren Gallery, University of Denver, US (2008). Public collections include Long Museum, Shanghai; Burger Collection, Hong Kong; Denver Art Museum, US; Rubell Family Art Collection, US and Taguchi Art Collection, Japan.
