Joyously chromatic and brimming with reckless vitality, the paintings, drawings and collages of Danish artist Tal R (born 1967) are anything but academic—hence the ironic title of this overview, which surveys works from the past 20 years of his vast output as well as a series of new works. Tal R has been a storyteller from the outset of his career in the 1990s, always hovering between figuration and abstraction with a special eye for the overlooked, hidden and repressed spaces of modern life. “I do painting a bit like people make a lunch box,” he once declared. “I constantly have this hot-pot boiling and I throw all kinds of material into it.” While the artist is well known as a prolific publisher of artist’s books (usually gathering specific bodies of work), Academy of Tal R is the most substantial overview of his diverse ouevre yet published.

Selling shadows: 'Academy of Tal R'

Selling shadows: 'Academy of Tal R'

"Old God" (2000) is reproduced from Academy of Tal R, new from Koenig Books and the Louisiana Museum. Essayist Anders Kold compares the artist to Sigmar Polke, writing, "Tal R, too, is selling shadows, in the sense that he creates art in which emotion is the most powerful visual effect, without nearing painterly expressionism. It is emotion in a mythologized form, linked to emancipation and combating narrow-mindedness, not only artistically—but also personally, socially and politically." continue to blog
