Tal Regev is an artist that works primarily with painting. She’s based between London and Berlin. Her practice is concerned with the embodied experience of trauma. Through the materiality of painting itself, she explores memory, loss, separation and the affect of pain. She holds a BA in Fine Art and History of Art, Goldsmiths, University of London (2011).
One dominates the other, from a subtle presence to abuse. One sets the rules for the other to live by. I feed you with the air that circulates between us, till we suffocate, as we cannot escape each other. Between subtlety and aggression there is a whole range of colour and circumstance. I focus on the point of breaking.
