art is the opposite of being constantly conscious


Rail: Would you say that having the paper colored in some two or three layers creates a warm patina, which is less intimidating than just the whiteness of the paper?
R: Yes. It gives a certain comfort like having a cat on your lap when you talk to people.
The morning after the opening reception of his recent exhibit Tal R: Altstadt Girlat Cheim & Read (January 15 – February 14, 2015) the artist Tal R welcomed RailPublisher Phong Bui to the lobby of Bowery Hotel (where he was staying, and just hours before returning to his home and studio in Copenhagen, Denmark) to talk about his life and work.
