Zeno X Gallery

Zeno X Gallery is pleased to present ’Seconds’, a new solo exhibition by Luc Tuymans. For this exhibition the artist created seven monumental paintings and an animation film. Numbers are an important motive in this exhibition. Last year Luc Tuymans spoke to Artforum about his interest in numbers: "In the past, I would cut out numbers and glue them to the surfaces of my paintings, enumerating the canvases from one to ten before starting over again. I saw these numbers as a reality that contrasted with the fictional character of what the painting itself depicted. During these days of pandemic, numbers have taken on a different meaning: On one hand, they portray the idea of piling up; on the other, they imply a countdown to an end."
