Rich in existential and allegorical resonance, the paintings of Jonas Burgert (born 1969) are peopled with surreal, foreboding characters such as warriors, beggars, harlequins, shamans and hybrid ghouls that seem pitched on the brink of some harrowing personal or apocalyptic moment. This volume surveys works from 2003 to 2010.
