In 1988, Luc Tuymans painted the four-part Die Zeit (The Time), referring to WW II, including a portrait of Nazi headpiece Reinhard Heydrich, two spinach tablets as well as a cityscape. This cityscape was later in 1994 reframed in the silkscreen entitled Die Zeit.
Working in series or with multipart works results here in a cinematographic sensation in the form of stills. Earlier in 1982, Luc Tuymans stopped painting for 3 years; 'The first videos were not about; just everyday images that struck me. [...] I kept on cutting and editing until the editing eventually became more important than the film itself '. Afterwards, these experiments continued to influence the indirect approach to subject and composition. Timeless and alienating.
