> DESCRIPTION

Friedman Benda presents Koen van den Broek: Apex, the Belgian artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, from April 25–May 24, 2013. There will be an opening reception at the gallery on Thursday, April 29th,  from 6 – 8 pm. 

A trained architect, van den Broek uses light, shape, and repetition to manipulate generic structures, be they natural or man-made, to disorienting and melancholic effect.

Known for employing photographic images taken on road trips as the basis for his work - from Belgium to Tokyo, Chicago, Los Angeles and beyond - Koen abandons these figurative narratives in his new show.  The flattened and skewed perspective in his latest paintings is gestural, active, and of the moment, invoking Abstract Expressionism in the vein of Clyfford Still infused with the self-conscious and self-referential characteristics of American Conceptualism.
