A Flawless Showcase For The Quietly Subversive Art Of Michael Borremans 23. Juni 2014
Von Corey Lidster - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This massive volume, at around 12 inches wide x 14 inches tall and 300+ pages, is a definite must-have for fans of Michael Borremans' beautifully rendered and quietly subversive works. Despite the fact that Hatje Cantz released another monograph dedicated to the Belgian artist in 2012 ('Eating the Beard'), international appreciation apparently demanded this comprehensive retrospective. 'Eating the Beard' provided an excellent overview of the artists' career, and in a way its a shame that such a great book has now been rendered obsolete by an even better one; but now that 'As Sweet As It Gets' is available and selling for a little bit less than its' predecessor, there is no question that anyone interested in Borremans' paintings should purchase this newer, larger volume.

Borremans is difficult to pin down and label, which is part of his appeal. The work of Johannes Kahrs uses photo-realism in a similar way, but for Kahrs and others, notably Swiss artist Andy Denzler, the grainy look of a VHS-still and the 'disturbed screen' effect of fast-forward and rewind, are integral. There is no apparent 'second medium' for Borremans, no technological filters to create distance. Instead, each painting presents a stiff tableaux, an obviously posed, artificial portrait, posing philosophical inquiries often tending towards the existential. His subjects are typically engaged in mundane actions, but these actions are always incomprehensible; their purpose can only be guessed at. They might be part of some elaborate and arcane ritual, or an experiment without a hypothesis, it's variables unknown. For Borremans, the utter inscrutability of human endeavor is an irrevocably isolating fact. Behavior is always distinct from motivation, our actions are banal mysteries upon which are built the lies and misinterpretations we call personality. If the idea's of Sartre could be translated into images, they might look a lot like the paintings of Michael Borremans.

With a variety of insightful essays and huge full-page reproductions, the design is flawless, never squandering the generous space allowed by the XL physical dimensions. 'As sweet As It Gets' is a great book, and well worth the money.

Excellent; Superb; Wonderful! 6. August 2014
Von Luca Graziuso and Marina Ross - Veröffentlicht auf

Michael Borremans’s paintings feature a somnambulant hyper-realism depicted in a desiccated dulling still-life numbness which by way of accentuating the shadowplay becomes singed with just enough reality to allow each subject to become a phantom presence of its own silence.
In these still-lives, shrouded as they are in the mysteries of painting as well as in a mystical fainting simplicity, the subject defines its existential nature in a state of suspension. Figures are captured in various stages of reverie, conveying an emotional vacuum, distancing its presence away from the viewer, yet through the viewer’s interrogation of what the nature of being and of painting may be.
The uncanny, dream-like intensity behind these surfaces renders them as lodged into a loneliness, the isolation of existence retrieving its own angst and lulling the pulse.
The most impressive quality of these paintings is how they manage to exist in spite of its claim to be at a loss, dissipating beings and things with nary a claim to being anything more than a painting and the absence it transfigures within the alienating mental state they personify.

The paintings reproduced with such glorious success are for the most part modest and small in scale, yet no less chilling and disturbing in their presentation; however this excellent retrospective of Borremans reproduces his paintings in a very large, coffee-table size art book. The chance taken by the editors and publishing house is commendable. It manages to retain that surreal quality while not compromising the stupor it incites. Every painting is accompanied by a brief 3 paragraphs of description and history of the painting, which often swells into lyrical domains. The seven excellent and compelling essays written by the editors are wonders that refract their splendor on the hush of the reproductions, while the interviews of Jeffrey Grove reveal a Borremans deeply engaged with the meaning of life in each and every nature mort expressive displays he puts to canvas. The price is relatively affordable compared to most other art books this size. And the epistolary poems and disorienting meditations that complement the book promise an experience that is both indelible and enriching.
“Michael Borremans: As Sweet as it Gets” is a more complete and sensational experience compared to the other retrospective available in English (Eating the Bread; edited by Hans Christ). Excellent; Superb; Wonderful!
