Luc Tuymans fills all the Wexner Center’s galleries and highlights the fluid progression of the artist’s work. Because his career began with filmmaking, Tuymans’s painting approach often suggests montage, as one image links to another, and additional meaning is conveyed by the pieces’ adjacency. The retrospective reunites paintings in the groupings originally set out by the artist and so conveys the original dialogue among the works. The presentation also demonstrates how Tuymans’s tendency to work in suites and at an ever-larger scale align his work with current installation and site-specific art.
