Fortune

Opening on Thursday, April 24, the gallery will present new paintings by the Belgian artist Luc Tuymans. The exhibition, entitled Fortune, is the artist's fifth solo show at the gallery. The artist's work has been shown widely throughout Europe and the United States. Earlier this month an exhibition of recent work entitled The Arena opened in Germany at the Kunstverein Hannover, and will travel to the Pinakothek der Moderne Kunst, Munich and then to the Kunstverein, St. Gallen in Switzerland. Another museum exhibition of his work will open in August at the Kunsthalle in Helsinki, and will travel to the Centro de Arte, Salamanca in Spain. The artist's work was recently included in Documenta XI in Kassel, Germany. Tuymans was also the Belgian representative of its national pavilion in the 2001 Venice Biennale. His work will be the subject of a major retrospective at the Tate Modern in London in May 2004. 

Born in 1958, Luc Tuymans produced his first mature work in his late teens. He abandoned painting for an extended period in the 1980s to pursue filmmaking, only to return to the canvas with a renewed focus. With the art world’s attention on post-conceptual work, installation art, film and video from the late 80s through the 90s, Tuymans, nonetheless, established himself as a unique voice in the visual arts. Today, amidst a worldwide and triumphant renaissance of painting, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists working today.
