Overview

Belgian-born Luc Tuymans was an essential figure in the painting revival of the 1990s. Curator-critic Jordan Kantor has underscored his importance by noting, "Not unlike Gerhard Richter two decades ago, Tuymans seems to have tapped into a particular mode of seeing and depicting that has unusual resonance. Indeed, these days one can hardly walk into a gallery or art fair with an eye peeled for painting without seeing the 'Tuymans effect'—the profound, if sometimes ineffable, way in which the look, subjects and even fundamental painterly approach of Tuymans' work has saturated a large and increasingly significant territory." This volume is the first to document one of Tuymans' wall paintings, completed for an exhibition at Kabinett für Aktuelle Kunst, Bremerhaven, Germany, which he documented with Polaroids throughout the entire process. The richly illustrated volume, printed in a limited edition of 1000 numbered copies, includes an interview between Tuymans and Udo Kittelmann, Director of the National Gallery Berlin.
