Lot Essay

‘With the paintings, at first you expect narrative, because the figures are familiar. But then you see that some parts of the painting don’t match, or don’t make sense. The works don’t come to a conclusion in the way we expect them to. The images are unfinished: they remain open. That makes them durable’ (M. Borremans, quoted in D. Coggins, ‘Interview: Michael Borremans’, in Art in America, March 2009).
