about this work

To coincide with the major exhibition Constable, Delacroix, Friedrich, Goya – A Shock to the Senses (Dresden, Albertinum, Galerie Neue Meister), Luc Tuymans has applied two major wall paintings of Peaches and of Technicolor to the walls of the staircase of the Schauspielhaus, Postplatz, Dresden. These two works were part of the exhibition which opened on March 16th, 2013. Peaches and Technicolor originated as paintings which Tuymans first showed in London at the Zwirner Gallery in autumn 2012, together with the ALLO series. The pictures were inspired by two images from an advertising film from 1913, whose lack of sharpness and weak colour saturation particularly interested him as a painter. 

about Luc Tuymans

Luc Tuymans is considered one of the most significant European painters of his generation, and has been an enduring influence on younger and emerging artists. Tuymans is an inheritor to the vast tradition of Northern European painting, while his relationship to the medium was strongly influenced by photography, television, and cinema.He paints distinctive compositions, consisting of ingenious use of cropping, close-ups and framing. By means of a muted palette, his easily recognizable, sparsely coloured, figurative canvases have redefined the traditional genres of the everyday and history painting.

Through a filmic or photographic gaze, Tuymans retakes heavily loaded themes from the recent past and examines footage on their deceptive authenticity, which often results in ambiguous and disorienting paintings. Frequently the notion of power and violence can be considered a leitmotiv throughout his artistic oeuvre.

Luc Tuymans has had important solo exhibitions at international institutions, including Tate Modern, London; Haus der Kunst in Munich; The Menil Collection, Houston; and Moderna Museet, Malmö; amongst many others. Tuymans's first retrospective in the United States was jointly organized by the Wexner Center, Columbus, SF MoMA, the Dallas Museum of Art and MCA, Chicago.

In 1992, Tuymans was invited to show at Documenta for the first time. His numerous, recent group exhibitions have since included François Pinault Collection, Palazzo Grassi, Venice; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; MoMA, New York; Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas; Hayward Gallery, London; Castello di Rivoli, Turin; and Essential Painting at National Museum of Art, Osaka. Tuymans also represented Belgium at the 49th Venice Biennale in 2001.

His works are featured in prominent museum collections worldwide, including The Art Institute of Chicago; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; MoMA, New York; Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Tate Collection, London.
