Tali Farchi Royce Deans
Tali Farchi (The Netherlands) and Royce Deans (USA) began collaborating during the summer of 2007 as they prepared for their first exhibition together in Amsterdam. The show titled Overzee was the first of many joint projects that have been accomplished inspite of the fact that their studios are separated by a very large body of water.
Tali's multi-disciplined, multi-media performance of Mo(ve)ment has been the vehicle the two artists have used to bring their individual art together. Over the relatively short period of time that Tali and Royce have worked together their very original approach to painting has evolved. The two work together on an art table on stage with live jazz musicians. Their artwork is projected for the musicians and audience to see. The on stage interactions between the two artists and the musicians is a dynamic display of the creative process that is laid out for all to see and experience first hand as it happens.
The art work that this duo creates captures the energy of the live performance in every brush stroke. Until now their art has only been sold after their performances. The two are currently looking for gallery representation for this ever growing body of work.
They work primarily on paper, but during the summer of 2009 they started working on stretched canvases doing one 36" X 24" canvas per show.
The work is as original and unique as the performances in which they are created.
The art work also figures largely in a documentary film that is being made titled The Mo(ve)ment Effect - Art Wtihout Boundaries that is centered around effect Tali's show Mo(ve)ment has on audiences.
