The Belgian artist Luc Tuymans is one of the most influential figurative painters working today. Born in 1958 and based in Antwerp, he has exhibited since 1985, with recent retrospectives in Europe and the United States. From the beginning, his work addressed the challenge to painting's legitimacy posed by minimal and conceptual art by taking a sidestep: creating works that seem to have emerged from a preceding era, alienated from their producer. This formal effect of historical distance works in counterpoint with the paintings' often emotionally evocative subject matter, which ranges from the traumatic legacies of postwar Europe to those of postcolonial Africa. Tuymans has also made films, collaborated closely on projects with other artists, and curated group exhibitions of both contemporary and historic art. In all these endeavors, Tuymans investigates the precarious space between documention and depiction of personal and collective memory. This volume collects the artist's statements on his own work as well as his writing on other artists, filmmakers, photographers, philosophers. and writers who have engaged with his thought. The second half of the volume surveys his major bodies of work in texts by leading art historians, critics, theorists and fellow artists.Contributors include Ai Weiwei, Helene Cixous, Montserrat Albores Gleason, Jean-Paul Jungo, Udo Kittelmann, Joseph Leo Koerner, Brice Marden, Kerry James Marshall, Takashi Murakami, Wim Peeters, Philippe Pirotte, Pablo Sigg

Book Description MIT Press Ltd, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. one-liner: Writings on the work of the painter Luc Tuymans' by the artist himself and the foremost writers engaged with his work.Luc Tuymans is one of the most influential figurative painters working today. Born in 1958 and based in Antwerp, he has exhibited since 1985, emerging internationally in the early 1990s as an artist who has addressed not just the continuation of painting's relevance but subjects as difficult to represent as the long-lasting traumas of war, colonialism, and everyday violence. Tuymans has also been a filmmaker, a curator of his own art and its context, an exhibitor of other artists past and present, and an eloquent writer on his work and that of the image-makers, thinkers, and authors who affect him. His pictures are ghosted by language, always in a relationship with their precisely considered titles and the constant articulation of reflections on their themes and ideas.Edited by the historian and publisher Peter Ruyffelaere and with an introduction by critic and curator Adrian Searle, this volume collects Tuymans' writings on his own and others' images, from Van Eyck, Velazquez, and El Greco to Edouard Manet, Giorgio Morandi, Hans-Jurgen Syberberg, Chris Marker, Neo Rauch, Paul McCarthy, and Jeff Wall. It includes dialogues with Tuymans' artist contemporaries Ai Weiwei, Kerry James Marshall, and Wilhelm Sasnal, interviews with Daniel Birnbaum, Martin Herbert, Jean-Paul Jungo, Udo Kittelmann, Luc Lambrecht, Wim Peeters, Kara Rooney, and Yasmine Chtchourova-Van Pee, and writings on the artist's central works and ideas by Montserrat Albores Gleason, Laura Hoptman, Joseph Leo Koerner, Takashi Murakami, Philippe Pirotte, Adrian Searle, and Pablo Sigg.
