Item description for Luc Tuymans by Stephan Berg Konrad Bitterli...

Since the end of the 1980s, Belgian artist Luc Tuymans has been developing an extraordinarily complex work, combining the question of representation and representability--inherent in any kind of painting--with a radical charge of pictorial motives. Grounded in a structure that is coolly figurative and drawinglike, and materials that are always preprocessed and mediated (for example, Polaroid shots, newspaper clippings, film stills), Tuymans creates calm, small-format pictures of cropped landscapes, objects, architecture, and seemingly masked people. In their pastel haziness, often primed with white, his pictures evade concrete designation. This book presents a representative selection of Tuymans's works as well as a large group of specially created new works delimited by two central picture motifs: the cycle Die Zeit references the Holocaust, whereas Passion concerns the essence of religious belief.

The Psychoanalytical Illuminations of Luc Tuymans  Jun 20, 2000
This book on Luc Tuymans is an excellent introduction to the strange world of this internationally reknowned Belgian Painter. What is it that stirs up the bizarre fascination of cognoscenti for this artist? At the very least, it is attributable to the deeply psychological expression that this artist conjures from his sometimes murky palatte, as well as his subject matter. He addresses these ideas in relation to living as an artist in this modern world and a Freudian psychoanalysis of history that seems all to prevalent in this information age; including, everything from the New York art world as evidenced in his painting "Heritage", which alludes to Jasper Johns flag painting and the Holocaust in paintings like "Our New Quarters". This artist also takes these issues to subjects like the body, which through his investigation and isolation of its various parts he formulates the queerness that follows a banal rendition of the functions of that space. In addtion, as a psychoanalytical historian this artist attempts to fuse the mundanity of the conscious world with the fanatsy of the world of dream, which always seems to be off center, and could be related to the work of Alex Katz and Robert Gober. At any rate, this book provides an excellent insight into the world created by Luc Tuymans, and comes highly recommneded by art lovers and aficianados alike.
VERY USEFUL.  Feb 24, 1998
The illustrations in the book are very fine. The interview with the artist gives more insight into his work than any of the writings in the book including his own. There is a good deal of critical double talk and bullshit, but biographical information, and useful details seem to slip through as well.
