Brain Drain

image

“The show will involve the squishing, twisting and wrenching of Jon’s meager brain to elicit revelational truths and insights through the medium of pens and paint.
Jon Burgerman’s work often deals with the modern world, disquietude, mental phenomena and irrelevant minutiae. These themes are taken as starting points for the creation of often flowing and interconnected hand rendered works that are simultaneously painting, design and mass communication.”

This exhibition is at The Gallery at Winchester Discovery Centre (UK).
Brain Drain features new paintings, prints, drawings, digital animations and soft sculpture, as well as key works from the last 8 years.
14 May 2010 - 11 July 2010

Thanks for your email and links.  Very inspiring and entertaining (esp the soya song).  One question… when are you coming to Australia?

what a wonderful exhibition! I’m so deeply impressed by those pictures. would give anything to see those works with my own eyes! all of them seem to be so simple, even childish, but at the same time they are so complex and complicated. are you planning some european tour? I love your works!!! so eager to buy smth of the kind)

Those were some of the most awesome abstract work I’ve seen in a long time!! It is so colorful and a real feast to the eyes and I really couldn’t say which the best was as each one was the best the previous one I saw!! I am sure that Jon Burgerman’s exhibition was a big hit and must have truly delighted the minds and hearts of everyone present there and made them wish that they could do something half as cool as what they saw!!

Darn! It’s such a shame that I missed out on this awesome exhibition. I can say with 100% honesty that this would have probably been one of the best exhibits I’d ever observed. Not only is the artwork bright, colorful and dare I say, cartoony—but the overall set-up is aesthetically pleasing and it should certainly grab the attention of young and old alike. Everything from the sculptures to the wall fixtures is really great. What a wonderful way to introduce everyone (especially children) to experimental and abstract art. Simply fabulous!!!

These designs are very nice. It’s a combination of graffiti and manga elements. I’d love to have some of those pieces on the wall in my apartment. smile
