Michaël Borremans

  • Michael Borremans’ work includes drawings, paintings, and film that explore the absurdity of existence through their surreal imagery. His work, in its intimacy, and by his painterly gests, draws reference to Velásquez, Goya, and Manet. Currently based in Ghent, the artist focuses on imagination and symbolism in his work. Interweaving fluidity and opaque solidarity, Borremans provokes a haunting, nightmarish atmosphere in this oeuvre. His work often includes sombre figures, grotesque and dark imagery that is at once beautiful and disturbing. It is the unsettling ambiguity of the work that offers viewers space for their own idiosyncratic interpretations, rousing personal perspectives and life experiences imbued into the tableau.
