Belgian artist Luc Tuymans is one of the most respected painters of his generation. The exhibition Against the Day, is a series of twenty new paintings which focus on virtual reality, illusions and fantasies. The title Against the Day is adopted from the book with the same title by Thomas Pynchon, who introduced paranoia to American literature. Tuymans, convinced that original pictures do not exist, has called his paintings “authentic forgeries”, and his paintings are often based on already existing drawings, photos, found images, stills from films, etc.
