Le peintre n'est pas la'

Zach Feuer Gallery is pleased to present Le peintre n'est pas la', the second New York solo exhibition by Israeli/Danish artist Tal R. The show, featuring five new paintings, will be on view from November 16, 2006 - January 6, 2007.

Le peintre n'est pas la' is the final show in a series of four exhibitions in which the artist restricts his color palette to seven colors: pink, yellow, green, red, brown, black and white. Working within these confines, the artist is enabled to breach conventions through a play on expectations that propels his work forward.

For the exhibition, Tal deliberately selected a French title that instills the show with a sense of importance by associating it with Grand 19th Century French academic painting. He plays with the rules of academic painting with paint straight from the tube, schematic renderings and flat or skewed perspectives with shifts in scale. Tal further challenges formal expectations by exposing the painter's assumed working process. The paintings featured in the show contain large "unfinished" sections of white primer and under drawing that depict the stereotypical painter's haunts: the studio, the academy and the drinking hall. However, in each work, the painter is conspicuously absent.

Tal R was born in 1967 in Israel and studied at the Billedskolen and the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen. He currently lives and works in Copenhagen. He has had solo exhibitions at Horsens Kunstmusem, Horsens; Museum Abteiberg, Monchengladbach; Bawag Foundation, Vienna; Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen and Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin. He has been included in exhibitions at Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Saatchi Gallery, London; Royal Academy of Arts, London and Sammlung Goetz, Munich. In 2007, a large solo exhibition of Tal's work will open at the Louisiana Museum, Denmark.
