Luc Tuymans: Ende (Hardcover)
Hard to Find
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 f r 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.
