Burgi Roger

  • France
  • Painter
As soon as I paint, I completely enter another world, I even tend to lose the notion of time. I always have the same pleasure in painting and the passion to create.
A self-taught passionate drawer since his childhood, Roger then tried to paint and make his first painting in 1966. Seven years later, after many months devoted to the development of his amateur practice, Roger decided to permanently swap his industrial designer tools for those of a painter. Since then, with his brushes and tubes of paint, he devotes every day to the realisation of his works. Marked by direct, bold and varied tones, Roger’s works are invitations to travel, celebrations of cultures and music, to which the artist invites us to take part.
Roger went into exile for some time in Greece; where he freely devoted himself to his practice, experimenting with various stylistic languages. The variations of colour as well as the geometrisation of shapes is at the heart of approach. From this important individual work, a first solo exhibition was born in Switzerland in 1974 – presented in Greece the following year – which officially launched his career. At the same time, the painter settled down in Marseille, seduced by its light which is similar to that which bathes the Greek coast. Roger’s pictorial style evolved over time to become more and more stylized and abstract, without ever losing his chromatic and formal identity. Between cubism and decorative painting, the artistry of the painter is meant to be sharp and precise, infusing emotion and dynamism into his subjects.
