Tal R, born 1967 in Israel, lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Tal R, one of Denmark’s most renowned contemporary artists, is known for his ever-expanding universe of images, many of which he finds in everyday life, pop culture, or on his various journeys around the globe. The process of recycling or sampling material from his own, vast archive has long been characteristic for his artistic efforts. Using details from his large-scale paintings, the artist allows the viewer to experience the works as if through a magnifying glass, while at the same time creating autonomous new works.
While being deeply familiar with the art of printmaking, Tal R keeps an investigative mindset when working in print, exploring innovative approaches and challenging the medium as well as himself. One of his preferred techniques, the Reduction Cut, allows him to create a many-coloured image from only one plate by carving out the motive layer by layer, resulting in vibrant prints full of Tal R’s characteristic vitality and playfulness.
Tal R has been working with BORCH Editions since 1995.
