Men Talk

This new series of paintings of Yuna Bert – originally mixing oil and acrylic on canvas – is less a surprise than a real paradigm shift because, for the first time, having previously explored the lost paradise of the Children and the mysteries of femininity, she focuses on men conversing. The characters of these paintings are still caught up in the movement, sketched in their daily activities. Whether standing or seated, face or three quarters, their faces are never visible in full, we do collect the best parts. The viewer must find the missing details of the paintings, conjure their absence. In the ‘Men Talk’ series, these interrupted stories lauch an interpretative and narrative challenge to the viewer. This one must resume the story line and complete the pending story.
