 Michael Burges: Reverse Glass Painting

Date: October 14-November 16, 2016

Place: Odon Wagner Contemporary, 196 & 198 Davenport Road Toronto, ON M5R 1J2

Michael Burges is a German Artist.  “The luminous reverse glass paintings of Burges extend a long and deep tradition of placing the image on the other side of a transparent transmission surface, in this case acrylic glass which unlike traditional vitreous and fragile glass, is shatterproof and scratch resistant. In other words, it assumes an ideally modernist stance and updates a material which was first explored by the classical Romans in the second century of our common era.
