I have been very excited to discover Tal R's work; both aesthetically and imaginatively his paintings keep me engaged for a long time. His exhibition Science Fiction is on at the Victoria Miro Gallery until 12th November. All the images I have seen tell me stories, but I had to pick one, Man on Sleep:

How long until it takes me to the sea that day and we picked them, all the flowers she’ll be so angry and I was too but I couldn’t say it, I love you, it was too late, the cafe was closing and my pocketwatch inside, tick tick tick I can’t stand the silence, why are we waiting so long, so long the beach and no shade for Mama, not a single tree, I can’t climb any of them and they laugh, my face is burning, hot and wet and she presses my fingers in deeper and I drift away.
