American, b. 1977

Kim Cogan’s oil paintings exploit the expressive nature of the medium to represent the many moods and environs of American cities. Cogan eschews the iconic views of places such as New York, Chicago, and his adopted home of San Francisco in favor of more common sights: alleyways, homes, cemeteries, and residential neighborhoods. Cogan’s work evinces an interest in the properties of light and atmosphere, which take on a heightened effect in his paintings of San Francisco. He uses subtle gradations of paint to suggest specific times of day, allowing individual brushstrokes to cohere into expressionist renderings of urban spaces.
