About the Artist

At the heart of Berges Alvarez's work is a profound concern and admiration for our extraordinary planet, particularly our shared "soundless landscapes" of oceans, open skies, mountains, plants and animals. Using metaphor and imagery he conveys a beautiful frailty while at the same time reminds us of the wonders we hold to protect in this astonishing world.

About the Artist

At the heart of Berges Alvarez’s work is a profound concern and admiration for our extraordinary planet, particularly our shared "soundless landscapes" of oceans, open skies, mountains, plants and animals. Using metaphor and imagery he conveys a beautiful frailty while at the same time reminds us of the wonders we hold to protect in this astonishing world.

He creates a gripping body of work that speaks out softly of our contemporary technological environment and at the same time presents images in natural balance, remote and long ago lost, surprising splendors of mysteries only found in faraway lands. Time and again his 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 modern world we’ve created and the delicate yet silently present, natural consciousness that exists around us.

Often abundant, dramatic with color and sometimes in silent melancholy Berges Alvarez’s symbolic practicality of the use of recycled manmade materials to create these beautiful land and seascape photographs always fascinates and involves the beauty found within frayed edges and torn materials used to produce them. Materials that seem to have been forever forgotten in our modern day throwaway society.

These digital photographs on cotton canvas are a bold, warm body of work that seeks to create a dynamic exchange between our connection to the natural world and our contemporary, technologically changing times.

Press and Accolades

  • 2013 “In Closely Listen, Bergés Alvarez proves that he has mastered the poet’s tools of trade. His is a unique voice, he has a lightness of touch, and a certain a Taoist wisdom. When reading his poetry, it is best to sit back and taste the words, say them aloud, and let a poem such as Most Moons resonate; the poem makes the sound of a spoon on a crystal glass, spare and elegant. The title poem urges you to “stir your words, close my eyes, and hold my breath”. Do this, and in the resulting quiet, the reader will hear a rare song, the voice of Bergés Alvarez in Closely Listen. “ Kristin Roedell, Poet, http://cicadas-sing.ucoz.com
    August 12, 2013
  • 2012 “In his poetry of longing Bergés Alvarez journeys through dense landscapes of the heart. His expressionist visions are driven by primal human needs and entanglements that pulse and grasp, beat and flow in passionate rhythm.” J. & J. Digby, Feral Press www.pp-pub.com
    September 1, 2012
  • 2011 “By day, Bergés Alvarez oversees many of the inner workings of a radiology organization. But beneath the “dark night sky” he dreams in poetic stanzas. Deep in his heart is a yearning to reflect and grow and come to understand the greater meanings of our everyday lives.” Long Island Pulse Magazine Publisher and Editor, www.lipulse.com
