Michael Borremans paintings

four fairies

The pupils

For some time I've been fascinated and intrigued by the drawings and paintings of the Belgian artist Michael Borremans. A lot of the people that inhabit the austere unsettling worlds of his paintings seem to be from the 1940s. Your never quiet sure what their doing or what's going on. The characters remind me of models from old 1940's instruction manuals demonstrating old skills and techniques. His paintings are unsettling, mysterious and melancholic. Im really drawn to the surreal images which he beautifully creates.
