About the work
Damian Loeb
American, b. 1970
Follow

Damian Loeb draws from our visually saturated contemporary culture to create hyperrealist paintings based on images appropriated from advertising, photojournalism, and film. In one series, sequential stills from movies like Rain Man, The Shining, and The Graduate were stripped of their protagonists and compressed into interior landscapes of surprising emotional and narrative weight, while recent works use Loeb's own photographs of his wife to generate similarly cinematic, fastidious compositions. The artist has famously been the subject of multiple copyright infringement suits.
