Summary
Luc Tuymans is a painter engaged with "figuration", using imagery that he reworks in a critical or self-critical way. He combines images from various sources - photographs, film stills, mirror images - with a spare palette, unexpected cropping, obscured spaces and blurring to reinforce the painted image's status as a replica. Perhaps more than any other genre, portraiture allows Tuymans to explore the balance between revealing and concealing. Portraits: Luc Tuymans presents about 30 paintings from bodies of work ranging over the artist's entire career. Most seem conventional portraits - Himmler, 1997/98, A Flemish Intellectual, 1995 - but others, such as Bloodstains, 1993, and Fingers, 1995, exhibit the artist's elliptical approach to re-presentation. Exhibition: The Menil Collection, Houston, USA (27.09.-05.01.2014).
