Do I ever tire of painting the city? Never.
I am fortunate to live in a city which offers endless inspiration. Even some locations I have painted several times because I see it differently than before.
This new painting has been added to the store.
Online store has been added to kimcogan.com.
In the store you will find featured printed matter; brochures from past exhibitions and past limited edition artist runs. There is a limited amount and will only be on sale while they last.
Also find a section designated for small works. Each month I work on a handful of small sketches/preliminary paintings which someday might become larger paintings, but for the time being they have slowly been accumulating in the studio. To keep the store interesting, I will be adding some of these new small works each month. I figured this would be a great way to offer some exclusive small artworks for an affordable price, a great way to start an art collection or compliment your collection with a small gem. So please check back and I hope you will enjoy.
If you are looking for anything specific, have a question or feedback please contact directly.

The Other Side by Kim Cogan Acadia Contemporary, September 2015
In his debut solo exhibition at Arcadia Contemporary, San Francisco-based artist Kim Cogan pushes the boundaries of realism to travel to the realm of memory.
The Other Side, the artist’s first solo exhibition in two years, is Cogan’s attempt to reconstruct how the mind remembers. Through paintings that piece together abstract memories with a palpable nostalgia of a distinct time and place, the artist creates a new, dream-like reality.
Cogan is a keen observer of his surroundings, capturing the passage of time and vanishing landscapes that hold so much memory. Haunted by the things that no longer exist, Cogan was interested in more than merely reproducing a literal translation of a place, a time or person. He wanted to create a story and evoke a longing for the past. “By combining old photographs with new ones, I wanted to make a complete image, very similar to how you might construct a memory in your head,” he says.
The challenge was in the process. Cogan composed the paintings in a way he had never done before. He used his own childhood photos and combined them with fragments of objects, people and environments to manipulate a new narrative, at once familiar and alien. Figures were not necessarily designed as the focal point, but sometimes drawn and redrawn around the surroundings. The brush strokes compliment the story by focusing on shapes, not likeness. Cogan says, “The picture is a starting point for provoking a deeper thought or memory. The paint is pushed to be more expressive.”
The story that unravels from these paintings is not about a singular subject or an exact reality. As Cogan puts it, “It is more truthful. There is honesty in how I experienced it, how I remember it.”
