is a self taught American painter. Growing up in Connecticut, he moved to New York City in 1989. Loeb had his first solo show in 1999 at the Mary Boone Gallery. He is now represented by Acquavella Galleries in New York and has had international solo and group shows at galleries and museums, including White Cube in London, Jablonka Galerie in Cologne, the Kunsthalle in Hamburg, and a 2006 retrospective at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Connecticut. His work has consistently explored the dialogue of narrative tropes in an image soaked contemporary environment. Early works used found imagery collaged to create new contexts from photojournalism and advertising. Successive shows moved on to use and explore cinematic stills as the source of a visual collective consciousness.
