“Almost all of Tala Madani’s paintings seem to come from a single scene, a ‘square’ where the actors of a silent film might be said to perform, like fragments of a single world. They function like short sequences or excerpts from a pop-up animation. Infinite loops on Vine, flashy snapshots on Instagram, customizable images on Snapchat: Tala Madani bases her pictorial practice on a diet of online imagery on social networks, and she uses the visual codes of advertising to underscore its negativity.”
