Tal R’s expressionistic work is immersed in a visual language that considers the figurative and its inherent mystery as a salient motif within his sensual and intuitive images. His practice broadly includes painting, drawing, collage, prints, sculpture and installation. The luminous quality of the paintings is expressed through the application of lusciously applied oil paint. Foregoing prefabricated black colour, he combines colours to create a bespoke ‘black’ within his palette, further eliciting ‘the feeling of colours colliding with other colours’. The naiveté of outsider art and the experience of the everyday has formed his approach drawn from past and present––ranging from nostalgia for the streets, bars, and sex shops of Copenhagen to the intimacy of the boudoir, where nude figures recline, and to the home, where accumulated bric-à-brac resides.
