  • About the artwork

    In the series "Unreliable Memory", Michael Bastow recreates some of his early works. Realized from memory, without any model in his studio, these pastels bring back to life some women, friends (Roland Topor) or places (Melbourne, London, Paris) that are dear to the artist. This questioning on recollection crystallizes the incandescent beauty of his nudes: evocations of curves, dazzling gestures, indecent posings and magnetic bodies. As if memory had kept, in the field of emotions, intact visions of sensuality.
