Pen on Paper
43 x 36cm
Tal R's drawings operate like highly rendered versions of the places his paintings might represent; half way between realism and its total corruption via the artist's imagination. Favoured motifs reoccur in different form, and recognisable imagery transforms into clunky geometry. In Tranquebar Tal R draws a scene of gothic fairytale proportion; his mystical village with wandering goat bears striking resemblance to a Mediterranean cemetery. The fragmented ground, made of collaged patches of paper, underscores this shifting illusion.
