From the press release:
The artist Loren Munk is a painter, videographer, and writer. He is known within the New York artist’s community primarily for his extensive work documenting the art scene through his map and diagram paintings, video reports and reviews. Munk has executed numerous national and international public and private commissions, including a mural for the Mayor’s Office of Paris. He is well represented in important collections throughout Europe, South and North America and the Middle East.
Most recently, Munk has been producing a major series of paintings that tackle the subject of art itself through an historical and diagrammatic lens. The paintings shown here are drawn from this body of work and are three of the largest paintings, monumentally scaled map paintings of the New York and Los Angeles art worlds. This is a show of paintings made for art enthusiasts by an art enthusiast. Loren Munk is the most serious and committed student of arts recalled, remembered, and recorded past as well as its infinite present.
