EVERGREEN

New Works By Kim Cogan

Hashimoto Contemporary, San Francisco

September 2019

Artist Kim Cogan explores the passage of time, integrating both present and remembered subjects in his latest works on exhibition at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.

His awareness of memory and place as emotional triggers continue to be a source of creative exploration and expression. Some paintings are grounded in Cogan’s experience of a particular neighborhood, such as Into the Sunset and Nightcrawler, in which the artist uses color and light to represent the essence of his surroundings. Other paintings are seemingly devoid of explicit markings that identify a precise setting. Destination Unknown uses composition and gradations of color to direct the viewer’s gaze towards an undetermined, yet familiar focal point. In this way, Cogan creates a harmony between memory and realism. 

Paintings like Pay Little are built up over several layers to depict contrasting areas of light. Cogan’s rooftop panoramas skillfully balance painstaking detail with suggestive elements that the eye completes. This slow and dynamic technique evident on the canvas parallels a similar transformation of the city itself—constant and continuously renewing. 


It is perhaps especially meaningful that the pharmacy depicted in Evergreen is one that no longer exists. Through a narrative of vanishing landscapes, Cogan’s work attempts to capture a permanence of change.

Parallel Transformations

New Works by Kim Cogan

Gallery Henoch, New York

November 2018


“The painting emerges and is transformed in parallel with the city.” –Antonio Lopez

Artist Kim Cogan returns to the altered and familiar landscapes of New York City in his first solo exhibition at Gallery Henoch in seven years.

His new body of work reflects Cogan’s many reencounters with the city, merging both observed and remembered perspectives. Paintings such as View from Pearl Paints and Dumbo at Dusk harken back to a previous reality, recognized only by some. Perpetually grounded in his explorations of the city, his paintings recall a progression of locations studied—from street-level alleyways to rooftop panoramas.

Cogan’s brand of realism is characterized by an atmospheric intentionality. Figures do appear in the work, as in Man on a Street Corner and Passenger, but Cogan’s use of light, color and contrast also suggest narrative elements. In Plan B and Fifth Avenue, he situates our gaze purposefully to evoke a sense of unknown curiosity.

Perhaps the painting most revelatory of the artist’s frame of mind is Wish You Were Here. Depicting his mother-in-law (who suffers from Alzheimer’s) sitting quietly in his living room, the painting is a snapshot of a transformative moment in Cogan’s recent past. “I wanted to capture this defining time in our lives, and how I have been changed by it.”
