Koen van den Broek
Marlborough Contemporary is pleased to present ‘Koen van den Broek: Cut Away the Snoopy’. This will be the second exhibition of the renowned Belgian artist at the gallery and marks a turning point in his artistic practice.
Widely known for his series of paintings inspired by unconventional perspective, for the past decade Koen van den Broek has been consistently influenced by urban landscape. Van den Broek often experienced these landscapes whilst on road journeys in the United States, where he would focus on one detail, taking hundreds of snapshots that he could later use as source material for his canvases. The detail might be a section of a road, cracks in the asphalt, or a particular shape of shadow.
