Luc Tuymans’s metaphorical and figurative paintings, with their muted palette of grays and browns, transform television, film, and print sources into examinations of history and memory. Beneath the artist’s restraint and gentle, often exquisite, painterly language are themes ranging from the Holocaust to corporations’ ill-gotten power to Walt Disney’s vision of the future. Still Life (2002), Tuymans’s response to 9/11, is a large-scale painting of the most quotidian of objects, fruit and a glass pitcher, a comment on the impossibility of capturing the unspeakable.
