POINT OF VIEW (Abstractions)

In observing the material world through the mind's eye, symbolic meanings are gleaned from the obscurest of objects. Through the conduit of the camera, a hardware fixture in a construction site or the background image of a film still reveal an extraordinary cosmological scene strewn with esoteric meaning. A deteriorating wall metamorphoses into a galaxy and the emanation of blazing light, from an industrial lamp fixture, is transformed into the fullness of a new moon. The reality, the object in its original state, is now replaced by the reality of Burgel's psyche. By reinterpreting the original image through abstraction, each surrealistic composition presents to the viewer an alternative otherworldly landscape.
