Belgian artist Luc Tuymans (born 1958) 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. 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.
