Jonathan Berger: A Future Life
Feb 12-March 12, 2016
Adams and Ollman Gallery
My most beautiful and lovesexy super talented young child of New York high art Jonathan Berger who was production designer and producer of my recent revamp of Mozart in the Jungle Fever of The Magic Flute at the 80 WSE Gallery has a brilliant solo exhibition of his own that opens Feb 12 to March 12 at the renown Adams and Ollman Gallery at 209 SW 9th Street in Portland Oregon. I have known Jonathan since he was a weenager and coed at California Institute of the Arts where I taught a performance art class with tattoo love god Ron Athey back at the end of the last century.
I fell madly in love with Jonathan and his intoxicating architecturally pulsar body of sculpt specific work, and way of thinking that was light years ahead of his peers, or anyone else for that matter. Jonathan stands alone in an art world filled with mawkish poseurs and insipid frauds. The gifted Mr. Berger is one baby manchild Prince of Judea of not only the promised land but the Attavey Real Madrid-McCoy. There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the alchemy Jonathan Berger is able to invoke.
So I implore all you bi & tri-sexual coastals to not hesistate in flying and or skipping to the mighty Pacific Northwest to see Jonathan Bergers solo exhibit A Future Life. Your life will depend upon it.
I predict this show will be at the top of the critics lists come the end of 2016 and the name Jonathan Berger will be a household word.
