All of Jonathan Berkh's works have one thing, one essential element, in common. This commonality exists of a swiftly for the eye detectable and recognizable element. This can be a square, a circle, a line, a geometric body or an everyday object. Although these elements are essential because they catch the view, the attention; they are not the most important elements of his work. Much more important to him are the spaces that expand behind these items if one takes the time and freedom to discover and embrace them.
Optical illusions, three-dimensional impressions, spatial structures and arrangements occasionaly emerge, that at times can be confusing but always dissolve into harmonious entities.
His works are clearly under the influence of urban structures, surfaces and spaces, architecture, design, theater, aswell as the interest in socio-cultural relationships and affiliations, may be self-chosen or through birth.
Preferred materials are mainly paper and cardboard but also canvas with which the creative development process challenges him very differently as this may be the case on the preferred and beloved papers and cardboards. Acrylic paint, Chinese ink, pencils, brushes and cloths are being challenged to every possible extend.
The intention behind his work is to compose the perfect chaos, which naturally leads to balance and harmony. He does so by simply creating diffusion, meaning an even distribution of objects and particles involved on the artwork. In his works he follows the law of nature behind the chaos, when interpreting chaos as apparently random distribution. The aim is to achieve maximum entropy - maximum proportional and probable distribution - according to the natural process of accomplishing the condition of largest disorder - which again is chaos.
