Derived from photo-diaries of his travels, the paintings of Koen van den Broek (born 1973) depict empty highways, closed garages and desolate curbsides. This publication presents the monumental Insomnia cycle, painted in Antwerp, and the Greenhouse series, done during a residency in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Koen van den Broek (born 1973) paints landscapes on the boundary of abstraction and realism: urban outskirts, architectural details, cracks in asphalt, kerbstones, a straight road in perspective. He has recently become known for his Border Paintings, abstracts cropped from architecture, and for his collaborations with John Baldessari. Crack presents the first comprehensive selection of Van den Broek's work over the last ten years.
