°1982, (US) – lives and works in New York (US)
For New York-based painter Jeanette Mundt there is no image that cannot be subject to a playful ironization in paint. From her husband’s paintings of his own tattoos to American Olympians to her own body in various states of undress, Mundt selects an image and then hunts the free-floating picture back into the material flux of the painted surface. Images that could be found in social media channels are slowed down, paused, and reworked to often-great comedic effect. But Mundt’s sharp-wittedness is technical, too. She is a highly skilled painter, even if skill today is not something easily recognized or praised, especially in the world of painting.
Jeanette Mundt’s work is currently on view in the 2019 Whitney Biennial and solo exhibitions have been organized by New Museum, New York; Société; Berlin; Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, New York; the Green Gallery, Milwaukee; and Bridget Donahue, New York. Group exhibitions include Galerie Neu, Berlin; Greene Naftali and Matthew Marks Gallery, New York; G2 Kunsthalle, Leipzig; METRO PICTURES, New York; and Lisson Gallery, New York.
