Michael Burges: Behind the Glass at JanKossen Contemporary NYC

Only four days left of ‘Behind The Glass’, Michael Burges’ first solo show in New York at JanKossen Contemporary.

On view since October 20, 2016, JanKossen Contemporary currently presents Michael Burges’ premier solo show in New York City. Until January 28, 2017, the exhibition features a selection of Burges’ most recent artworks from his Reverse Glass Paintings series. Created with a unique technique, the series is characterized by an extraordinary aesthetic of vibrant colors as well as gold and platinum leaf. By using plexiglass instead of canvas, the German born artist has created a range of abstract pieces with a unique color presence. The visual impact of these artworks literally draws the viewer into an alternative reality.

Using a multi-layering process, the artist freely experiments with different techniques as well as a variety of colors and metals including platinum, copper and gold leaf. These paintings act like an exploration of the possibilities of color, space, and their different effects on the viewer. On display only until January 28, 2017, the exhibition invites us to an open, non-verbal dialogue. A few examples of his work can be found below.
