    About The Work

    For his edition with Massif Central, Tal R has translated onto silk his Fauvist inspired 2010 painting of the same title. A mocking depiction of English high culture’s Sunday Afternoon horse painting, the pastel colours of Haute Couture lack the richness of high saturated pigments and the horses’ white bodies lack pigment altogether. Moreover, the equestrian scene has gone awry. Traditionally depicted as heroic or dramatic when a rider is thrown, these impossible horsemen–set backwards, positioned on the animal's rear, and falling forward–are comical expressions of failure.
