The paintings of Tali Lennox are links and mediators between our real-life sphere and the spiritual one. Her impressive portraits draw parallels between German art of the 1920s and of the current 2020s. Lennox describes in particular the latter as a time of political and ecological decline, which captures the glittering escapism in a time of impending uncertainty. The people portrayed in Lennox's work are mostly strangers whom she meets on the streets of New York and then photographs in a staged fashion that matches their stories.
