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.”

Flashback
New artworks by Kim Cogan
Hashimoto Contemporary, San Francisco
October 2017

Artist Kim Cogan explores the iconography of our memories in his first solo exhibition in
San Francisco in over 5 years.

Flashback is both a consequence of Cogan’s earlier works dealing with time, memory
and place as a source of meaning—and it is also the inception of a new inquiry on
imagery over form. What icons trigger nostalgia in us? Is it merely the representations of
familiar places and objects, or is it the expression of color and light that evoke our
memories?

Steeped in the city’s obscure enclaves and outer landscapes, Cogan is immersed in a
San Francisco seemingly bygone. Artifacts of the present transport us back to a time
and place at once familiar and incomplete. Witnessing the vanishing architecture of our
streets can activate recollections of the past akin to discovering a long-lost photograph
of a childhood memory.

Just as deliberate as Cogan’s selection of icons is his attention to composition and
technique. As an artist, Cogan has always exploited paint’s tactile form to exaggerate a
mood or overstate emotional content. “The painting is built up in several layers—some
translucent, some opaque—in order to create depth,” says Cogan. “I often add or
subtract details to focus the viewer on a specific area of the composition.” His aim is not
merely to reproduce a literal translation of a scene, rather it is to elicit a response
through a complete visual experience.

Cogan’s work reminds us that, in this inescapable race forward, our experience of
contemporary life and art draws much more from our understanding of the past than our
untethered ideas of the future.
