As Sweet As It Gets, Michael Borreman
“a knife in the eye.....In his larger oil paintings, figures appear alone in a moment of immobility or introverted action. Typically, there is no eye contact with the viewer, and it’s not always clear if the figure depicted is alive..." writes Jurriaan Benschop in his review for Artforum Critics Pick.
Borreman's survey at Bozar Expo contains over a hundred works and will make its way to the Dallas Museum of Art next March.
