Tal Regev

Early career

It comes up at night, from my stomach up through the throat, into the mind and out of the body.
Then I fall, fading away.
The figures are fading out.
They are spilling and leaking. They can’t hold their own content.
I let them leak, I let them spill, I let them clean.

I work primarily with painting. My practice is concerned with the embodied experience of trauma. Through the materiality of painting itself, I explore memory, loss, separation and the affect of pain. My works suggest a psychic map of what is “held” within the body.
