Florian Eymann lives and works in the French Loiret and came to the painting as an autodidact.
With a sharp eye and painterly skill, his portraits seem to penetrate to the core of the person: The supposed faces of the portraits appear distorted, sometimes ghostly orviolently deformed.
The oil paint applied with brushes, spatulas and fingers seems to peel out of the dark background and to break open the facial physionomy beyond recognition. Eymann’s bizarre-expressive depictions of figures and isolated pictorial spaces are partly reminiscent of Francis Bacon, who has been holding up a mirror of human conﬂict to viewers since the 1920s.
