Still American’s serialized reproductions exist, semi-altered, in a synergy of transference, from abstraction to figuration and back again. A re-ordering of collective recollection through a composite of styles and techniques, Mundt takes ownership and mastery of heavily utilized motifs in the history of painting: Landscape, Nude, Self-Portrait, then sets them ablaze. Fire itself, Mundt notes, is an elusive element to perfect, and a flicker of painter’s bravado. And within this unsettling production and reproduction of fire, Mundt establishes her narrative control.
This is Mundt’s first exhibition with Company Gallery. Other recent solo exhibitions include those at Société, Berlin; Overduin and Co., Los Angeles; Gavin Brown’s enterprise, New York; Bridget Donahue, New York and Off Vendome, New York. Mundt’s work has also been included in the 2019 Whitney Biennial, the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York as well as group shows at the New Museum, New York; Kunsthalle Leipzig; Greene Naftali, New York and Galerie Neu, Berlin.
