About the work
Tal R
Israeli, b. 1967
Follow

Tal R uses the word kolbojnik, meaning leftovers in Hebrew, to describe his practice of culling imagery, both figurative and abstract, from a wide range of high and low culture. Like work by Donald Baechler, Maira Kalman, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Tal R’s paintings, with their bold brushstrokes, colorful patterns, and exuberantly painted imagery, give the false impression of childlike simplicity, belying a subtle complexity that revolves around his attempts to reconcile pictorial traditions with expressionism. Interested in creation myths and darker themes, Tal R's work is consistent in its display of joy and playfulness.
