Artworks by Tal R

Tal R (Tal Rozenzweig) was born in 1967 in Tel Aviv (Israel). He currently lives and works in Copenhagen (Denmark).

 

In recent years, he has become one of the leading international contemporary artists. With coarse brush strokes from a relatively modest color palette, Tal R rapidly worked towards a very characteristic expressive way of painting. The combination of large color surfaces, solitary figures and almost no perspective creates an imagery that seems both naive and complex. In recent years, Tal R’s paintings have undergone an almost complete reversal with shower colors, thinner strokes and increasing details. The new paintings are also influenced by the fact that the artist uses a technique where color pigments are mixed with glue made from hare skin, resulting in the color being quickly absorbed into the canvas, thus creating a matte quivering surface that cannot be painted over without being noticed

 

Tal R is represented by Niels Borch Jensen Gallery & Editions.
