Flotsam by Kim Cogan Hespe Gallery, September 2013

San Francisco-based artist Kim Cogan drifts into an exploration of coastal landscapes in his new solo show, Flotsam.

By observing the environments and structures seen around the coast, Cogan brings together the sensibilities and techniques he applied to create his atmospheric city scenes and kinetic wave paintings and seascapes.

Cogan’s new work suggests a sensory experience of the landscape, mimicking the passing of time. His fluid brushstrokes render an atmosphere steeped in history, evoking a sense of weathering and abandonment as a testament to the consequences of both natural and man made elements.

Through his use of light, color and shadow, Cogan chooses to exaggerate a mood or overstate emotional content. “The panting 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.”

The result is a complete visual experience, skillfully rendered, yet impressionistic—with meaning carried along in the eyes of the viewer.
