Magritte and Co." For the occasion 16 works of Yves Bossut enter in the
collections " Belgian Surrealism " of the Royal Museum
Some critiques from previous exhibits
are made of poetry, symbolism, surrealism and women reign as timeless, multiple
goddesses." ? "From his architect
background, Yves Bossut produces paintings
of perfect proportions and balance, with spaces ravishingly
well arranged." Paris Match, May 1991
"The flowers and gardens of YB are inhabited by
a feminine imaginary coming straight from "Le Grand Meaulnes"
[novel by Alain Fournier]. The sweet, serene, delicate
imagination of this neo-surrealist painter dresses his characters with a quivering grace and femininity. Here the painter become poet to mesmerize us." GAEL
"If your vision of paradise is still
blurred, run discover the work by YB."? "A romanticism of another age that
seduces by the purity and
the softness of the stokes and tones,
by its topic, by the romantic flow of the colors. A
world where everything is beautiful, charming,
voluptuous. In front of these
canvases, one experiences a
sweet sensation of happiness
and peace, whilst an esthetic jubilation." "YB poet-painter" ?. "YB, painter
of the women" N.B. Vlan
1430, May 1992
"The artist compiles a world made of poetry
and sweetness where diaphanous young women evolve. Between surrealism and symbolism, he has invented a unique, fascinating universe." Flaire No 23 June 1992
The artist transcribes on canvas his childhood
soul, his dreams, his hopes. Hopes of a prettier, brighter
world cleaned off of all its
impurities. His gardens, his flower
bunches, his women all transpose us into the universe of "Le Grand Meaulnes" [novel by Alain Fournier] and into
such an appeasing romanticism of another age. Nouvelle Gazette 14/5/92
"It's about a rendezvous with strangeness,
and imaginary, with humor too." M. Jean Potty Deputy Mayor, Brussels
His canvas reflect grace and femininity in the
purest manner." La Province
