Though these paintings aren’t exactly representational,
one might guess by looking at them that Koegel is interested in architecture.
They’re colorful and geometric, characterized by grids, planes, and textures that
call to mind building materials like slate or wood planks. Many pieces feature
organic forms reminiscent of climbing vine, as with In
Bloom (2010). Others surfaces look cracked or peeling, like Here’s What’s Left (2010).
