Anton Kern Gallery is pleased to present its first solo exhibition with Danish artist Tal R, consisting of fifteen paintings and twelve bronze sculptures.

Tal R is best known for his paintings and their exceptional display of energy and imagination in a colorful and exuberant universe. For the first time, he has also thrown himself into classical bronze sculpture. In Boy Walking and Cinnamon, the viewer can experience the artist’s motifs transformed into three dimensions — a striking parade of figures in patinated bronze. His creatures have arrived in New York with arms and legs, heads and paws, wings and shoes, beaks and eyes.

Concurrent with Anton Kern’s presentation, Tal’s sculptures also make their institutional debut at the Glyptoteket in Copenhagen, in a solo exhibition entitled Animals and People on view through January 2021.
