La singulière nature humaine

The Singularity of Human Nature

Curator: Martin Bündock

In view of a new exhibit at the MX Gallery, scheduled for November 2015, Besner began to reflect seriously on the creation of a series that would be designed specifically for the gallery. He has proposed a very personal exhibit entitled “Human Nature in the Singular”. Besner has proposed a series of intimate and personal portraits, dominated by profound and complex shades of grey, which appear to emanate from successive layers of oil based paste. The striking color contrasts, which have almost become the artist’s signature, have been greatly subdued. This may be the result of the new coloring and etching techniques with which Besner has been recently experimenting.
