Tali Lennox’s figurative paintings focus on themes of femininity, performance, grief, and objectification. In sleek, shiny paintings that suggest the heightened drama of German Expressionists, Lennox depicts carnival performers, grand dames, and dancers dressed in flowing silk garb, accentuating and exaggerating the facial features of her subjects so they resemble ghouls or vampires. Lennox’s figures are frequently dressed in luxurious finery, and in their skeletal beauty speak to our fascination with death and the vagaries of fashion and beauty.

Lennox lives and works in New York.
