H.S.L.R. is an acronym for an invented name of an urban planner who has been living in the United States since the 1970s. He wishes to avoid exposure since he has left Israel following his military service and vowed not to return until the establishment of a Palestinian state. In the past H.S.L.R has commented on the Grotesque drawings that Tamar Getter presented at Dvir Gallery, in her show (1)GO. They are also in her artist's book, published by the Kibbutz Publishing in 2009.
In anticipation of "Hēliotropion," Tamar Getter's exhibition recently on display at the Mishkan Museum of Art, Ein Harod, H.S.L.R. talked with her about horses and other matters that preoccupy her in her work: painting stoppages, idealization, and painting as a "machine," immobile.
