Kim Cogan at Gallery Henoch, NYCJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 28 Sep 2011
Just recently opened is Kim Cogan's show at Gallery Henoch in New York City. The San Francisco-based artist paints street scenes and cityscapes of his home with impressive finesse. These oil paintings have an amazing sense of detail, mood, and light. The works are dark, highlighting the city's details with a photographic eye and then using the painting medium to exaggerate movement, light, the general atmosphere to his own end.
Cogan's work balance between realistic detail and painterly abstraction, encouraging the viewer's eye to move around shapes, forms, and brushstrokes. The show runs until October 15th.
