“There is one major theme in Tal R’s images: they narrate the process of their own creation,” wrote the German magazine art recently about the Denmark-based Israeli artist Tal R (*1967). “He collects fabrics, images, objects, as if he were trying to bring the entire world into his studio.”

The etchings collected in this volume, which date from 1999 to the present, stem from the same impetus used for his large assemblages made of such materials as fruits, plastic bags, bottles, or old shoes, as well as for his collages of images from porno magazines, history books, and art catalogues. In these works on paper, Tal R continues to pursue his unique way of writing history, and eroticism, citations of nature, and political commentary continue to be important themes. Tal R’s visual world is revealed in an especially clear manner in the formal reduction of visual ideas, sketches, and inventive forms of his etchings.
