Model is one of five paintings from a series entitled The Spill, made in 2012.
These works are the result of an ongoing collaboration with Kerry James
Marshall that focuses on making an animation. Model is based on a Polaroid the artist took of an architectural model in his studio. It shows a notorious housing project in Chicago once visible from Marshall’s studio, but now demolished. Here, Tuymans’s engagement with architecture is apparent—buildings feature widely throughout his practice—and the bird eye perspective also adds a cinematic or theatrical component, as if the model is a stage waiting for a narrative to unfold
