Michael Burges

Born in Düsseldorf in 1954, the artist Michael Burges paints abstract color compositions that are characterized by brilliance and high-gloss haptics. His picture carrier is acrylic glass, which he paints from the back. Burges’ "Reverse Glass Paintings" deal with the laws and structures of nature, especially physics. His works include intensively colored reverse glass paintings as well as calm meditative gold leaf and silver leaf works with restrained coloration.
