Michael Burges - 12 Abstract Paintings
Michael Burges maintains "that we have to have an inner kind of image without which we would be unable to perceive images".This theory of equivalence is common to both: Eastern and Western philosophy. We can understand the paintings of Michael Burges as a statement on the facilities of response of our perceptive system, which is after all not yet fully understood by physiologists." ... the modern physical notion of vibration is reflected in the optical vibration in the universe of Michael Burges paintings"...
His pictures combine almost everything at a time: refraction, shining and reflected light, color as color and color as light, color as matter and color as energy, a virtual (visual) and a pictorial space, constantly re-inventing and re-defining itself with a little help by the viewer.
