Berges Alvarez’s work demonstrates a profound concern for our extraordinary planet, particularly our shared “soundless landscapes” of oceans, open skies and mountains. Allegorically he conveys a beautiful frailty that reminds us of the wonders we all hold to share and protect.
His artworks softly speak about our contemporary techno-digital environment while at the same time presents images in their natural balance. This social work reflects a natural world that allows present-day to show in subtle ways and in doing so constructs communication between the plastic recycled modernism we’ve created and the delicate yet silently present, natural consciousness that surrounds.
Abundant, dramatic with color and in silent melancholy Berges Alvarez’s symbolic practicality in the use of recycled man-made reflective materials to create these panoramas fascinates and involves the beauty that is found within the frayed edges and torn materials that seem to have been forever forgotten in our modern day throwaway society.
