It’s booky-wooky week over here at Hyde Headquarters. I’ve read too many,* lusted after more, but yet haven’t actually bought one. Weird. Anywho, today brings the announcement that Phaidon (how I love thee and your awesome blog) has come out with a collective on Luc Tuymans titled Is It Safe? I mean, is it? Let’s take a peek at what is inside…
- With his muted palette, conspicuous brushwork and idiosyncratic approach to history, Luc Tuymans (b.1958) has changed the course of contemporary art, influencing a whole generation of figurative painters
- Produced in close collaboration with the artist, Luc Tuymans: Is It Safe? presents more than 100 brand new paintings, most never before published
- Insightful texts by Tuymans and essays by Pablo Sigg and Gerrit Vermeiren expand upon and contextualize this significant new body of work
- Also included are the artist’s source images and numerous installation photographs
I am going to sell something on craigslist for the $70 to buy it. But what?
*Peter has all my blockbuster movies so I can’t return and grab new ones resulting in me reading 5 books in the last week or so.
