Michaël Borremans (Belgium 1963-  )

the confusing situation of painting in the field of contemporary art, lost between annoying old recipes and its desire to stay young whatever might happen,
leaves us often puzzled. But when, from time to time, painting remains painting, it’s always overwhelming.
The painting of Michaël Borremans is not hiding behind illusions or pretence , tied to its own history, it is defining its own mythology.
On the surface of this black mirror a blinding truth is revealed, the strangeness is dizzying, the beauty poisonous.
