category: Painting
technique: Oilpainting
Style: Representational


Statement:
PIETER BURGER is an artist and tutor of Fine Art from South Africa. He is an established professional artist that create art that crosses boundaries of traditional art disciplines. Cross disciplinary fine art practice with oil painting as main interest.


“As an artist I am assumed to reflect on the world of today as far as I know it, and seen it.
As a painter I am assumed to be aware of the Western painterly tradition.”

About his work: The “universal image” to which he referred, was created by means of collage, sampling or hybridization. The word “Universal” is used because he tend to use images from all possible sources.

“My initial idea was to create images that could be seen and understood by anyone, anywhere, in any context.”

The images are a rich combination of collected Art History and personal pictures, magazines, the www, movies (stills), etc. When choosing these images he doesn’t make any distinction whether the images come from high or low culture, DIY or academic art, commercial images, illustration, street-art, etc.

“What is fascinating for me is when I take these images from their original context and put them in a new context or composition where they get a new function. The dialog between the different images creates a new image, a new story. By combining different visual quotes I create a network, itself as a reflection of today’s world.”


Bio / Resumee / Statement:
Employing aesthetic interaction in order to give an account of a method whereby the artist and the viewer's sharing of each other's horizon of understanding can be used as a factor in the revelation of truth.

As alternative to modern and post-modern autonomy in the visual arts, my work focuses on an interactive relation as point of departure that offers a suitable optional method of interpreting truth. The productive aesthetical participation of viewers involves critical consideration and revelation of unforeseen possible truths, as well as the ability to improvise with scant data, enabling them to transform their established perceptions of truth.

Apart from the important influence on the visual arts, it also has an important influence on visual communication in the broader sense. An aesthetical participation approach incorporates ideological criticism and offers mankind diverse visual viewpoints, contradictions and many-faceted alternative truths to enable the development of self-understanding on the basis of moral understanding of the viewpoints of others.

"If the truth can be told so as to be understood, it will be believed."
Terence McKenna
