Luc Tuymans is undoubtedly one of the most important painters of his generation. Since the late 1980s, he also starts working with a variety of printing techniques, yet his graphic work often remains overlooked. Tuymans experiments with techniques and supports to transform basic material that has its origin in photos, videos, computer images or polaroids into new images. The basis of these works are super-8 films from the 80s. Tuymans harbours a fundamental distrust of the truth value of images. The dark and disturbing works cast a ghostly light on history.Add to your list
