My artworks are inspired by my travels, and are centered around capturing frozen moments in time. Moments that are intimate observations of people going about their daily lives, or details within a landscape or cityscape that are often overlooked or merely given a cursory glance.
‘His keen eye effortlessly captures these poignant vistas.’
Reberger is a well respected and eagerly collected artist, and although he calls Melbourne home his work reflects global influences via his regular travels to Europe and Asia. He has a love for different cultures, foods, religions and ecclesiastical history.
Reberger is well known as a master with charcoals and oil paintings, and his unique method of adding areas of color with chalk pastel.
He has also used gold and silver leaf with some images in this exhibition, not only to enhance the drawings and give them depth and clarity, but also pay homage to Italian masters such as Bernini and Cellini where he gives these works a new and modern perspective. The contrast between the mediums is particularly striking and harmonious.
Reberger has a special connection with Italy, and much of his inspiration derives from this intriguing country. Indeed he has made reference to the fact he definitely feels he has lived in Italy in a past life, and each visit always feels like a homecoming.
He divides his time equally between Melbourne and his studio in Daylesford, and his art works are widely collected within Australia and Internationally.
He is now represented in private collections in Italy, England, America, Lebanon, Asia and throughout Australia.’
It gives me great pleasure to present this exhibition to you.
The subject matter and images are all very close to my heart.
I hope these paintings and drawings also give you much joy.
