Tal R

I was shown A Ship Is Not An Island (Et Skib Er Ikke En Ö) a 10 minute film by Tal R recently and wanted to put together a collection of some of his work. I love how each painting feels like you're looking at the one before from a different perspective, one minute you're outside the black hole looking in, next you're inside one looking out. His painting style has been described as "kolbojnik", which means "left-overs", I really like this; it makes me think about negative spaces, reversed out and turned into something all on their own, imaginary shapes with no names, redundant, spare; gathering up the debris.
