Quote of Note | Luc Tuymans

“I stopped painting temporarily at the end of the 1970s/beginning of the 80s, because it was too suffocating, too existential, and it didn’t leave room for distance. And then by accident I started to work with Super 8, then Super 16, and in the end 35mm, which is very expensive, so you have to think carefully about what you’ll film. And then coming back to painting, my whole knowledge of the visual was informed by things that are nothing to do with painting: closeups, how you edit an image. The first painting I made after was ‘La Correspondance’ [1985; pictured], which is a highly conceptual image. So, for sure, that’s a big influence.”

-Luc Tuymans, in an interview with Martin Herbert that appears in the October issue of ArtReview. “Luc Tuymans: The Summer Is Over” opens soon at David Zwirner in New York. An exhibition of the artist’s work inagurated Zwirner’s London gallery earlier this month.
