New York-based artist Jon Burgerman has a new series of works up at WOAW Gallery in Singapore titled Feel The Heat. The works are made up of brightly colored, adorable creatures, all started to blend together and press up against each other. The work is filled with all sorts of drippy details, with some of the animals feeling a bit more diffused and languishing than others. This is because the work is meant to highlight a deeper issue:
“The title embodies a clever double entendre of a tongue-in-cheek reference to the ‘hotness’ in Burgerman’s latest work while also poignantly reflects our anxiety towards climate change as our planet grapples with its hottest recorded temperatures. Burgerman’s show goes forth with saturated neon-like colours, reminiscent of heat maps, where his compositions fluidly drip and merge into one another, mirroring the ever-changing state of our environment.”
Stop by if you’re in Singapore, the show is up till 23 September.
