Against the Day I
'Against the Day' is derived from two sources: from a snapshot photography Tuymand shot in his hometown Antwerp, and a painting 'Der Jagdaufseher' (1883) by Flemish painter Ferdinand Knopf. In this painting, Tuyman's finds "reality without romanticism - a rationality of anonymity" which is very much similar to Tuyman's own paintings. His paintings are seemingly calm, but always imbued with quiet paranoia and horror. The paintings are strangely 'vacant', filled with amounts of sublimated violence.
