Luc Tuymans Collection
Allo! (Portfolio of 3) - Portfolio of Silkscreens on paper. Luc Tuymans' signature figurative paintings transform mediated film, television, and print sources into examinations of history and memory.The three screenprints of the Allo! suite go back to a series of six paintings inspired by movies and first shown at the Association of the Croatian Artists, Zagreb.
The inspiration of these screenprints came from the final minutes of the film "The Moon and Sixpence", which tells the story of Charles Strickland, a middle-aged stockbroker who turns his back on his family and middle-class life and sets out for Tahiti to paint there, a character that clearly alludes to the life of Gauguin. Tuymans chooses to represent the tragic moment when Strickland’s physician has traveled from London to Tahiti to visit him but funded him already dead. The ghostly reflection of the artist himself visible on the scene of the physician standing in front of the dead artist’s monumental paintings adds an enigmatic dimension to this already allusive suite.
