'Surrender' by Luc Tuymans, Signed Serigraph printed in 2014 from an edition size of 80. The overall size of the Serigraph is 21 x 53.5 inches. The condition of this piece has been graded as A: Mint. Here is some supplemental information about the Serigraph: Hand signed and numbered out of 80 by the artist. Printed by Tubbax, Antwerp, supervised by Roger Vandaele. Published in 2014 by Ludion. Surrender is a three-part cycle of drawings executed in white and green pencil on black paper. It reprises the opening sequence of the 1968 film Twist of Sand. A former British naval officer turned smuggler is confronted with his past when he forced to return to treacherous waters near Angola along The Skeleton Coast in order to retrieve a batch of diamonds.; The series forms an exception in Luc Tuymans' oeuvre in light of his usual reluctance to use black when painting. Here the grainy texture and black colour of the paper ground have been used to heighten the dramatic effect of the scene rendered faintly in rough, textured pencil strokes.; The silkscreen edition is built up of three colours: the black feels absolute and endless, printed as it is beyond the paper's edges. The prints convey the grain of the pencil traces and also reproduce the vertical streaking drawn by the artist in the originals. Where the paper has been allowed to shine through, the white is particularly vibrant; in other areas the overlay of black, green and white creates additional tonalities.
