Online studio tour with Michael Bergt
August 6, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:15 pm$12
Michael Bergt has worked primarily in egg tempera for over thirty years, exploring the human figure. Michael’s paintings refer to a range of interests, including classical myths, sensuality, and the human condition.
“I’ve always been fascinated with the figure beautifully rendered and by pattern and decoration. In my new work, I focus on these two interests,” says Michael. “When you include a narrative, the dynamic becomes even greater. What is the meaning of what we’re doing, how does it look, and what pattern does it create? If we relax the need to separate what is real from what is imagined it becomes simply a relationship, and thus gains power. Those relationships are the potentialities from which we construct our culture, our sense of self, and our identity. Time and space are in play, and ‘play, is the operative word for what I’m doing.”
Join us for a virtual studio tour with Michael for an inside look at his work, his process, and the space where he creates.
