Michaël Borremans: the Badger's Song - Series 2013-2020

Author(s): Michael Borremans

contemporary art

The latest painting series from the Belgian master of eerie figurationBelgian artist Micha l Borremans (born 1963) is a master of contradiction. His paintings draw heavily from 18th-century portraiture techniques, but depict scenes that are stranger and more surreal than they first appear: in one painting, children dance in a circle, cloaked in black robes; in another, a woman attempts to cram her whole hand into her mouth. Avoiding any suggestion of a specific time or place, Borremans' eerie images are situated just slightly beyond the realms of possibility. His dark sense of humor and technical virtuosity are synthesized into a uniquely unsettling and endlessly fascinating experience for viewers. This volume provides an overview of all of Borremans' work since 2013, presented in seven different series of paintings. The majority of works collected here have never before been published.
