Joshua Hogan looks forward to exhibiting his painting, “A Shared Sense of Wonder” in the VACI Partners exhibition, Patterns and Repetitions: New Abstraction. The exhibition will be on display from August 1st through August 21st in Chautauqua’s Fowler Kellogg Art Center. The reception will be held Thursday, August 1st, from 3-5pm. To purchase a gate ticket for this event visit: Chautauqua Institution.

Hogan’s painting, “A Shared Sense of Wonder”, is an allegory for the interactions he experiences and the relationships between people in his own personal story. The act of painting requires the letting go of perceived memory in exchange for the opportunity to see something new. Painting is how he interprets the stories running through his mind that affect, form, and reshape his own sense-of-self.

Joshua Hogan : 33

Hogan places the shapes he has gathered from around the world and creates a metaphor for the way that all things relate. His paintings invoke concealed connections; they tie together things that are unlikely and distant. As if you are flying over the 3rd story, or the rooftop, or higher, Hogan’s paintings show a vantage point where, when you look down, everything is rendered into incredible abstraction and we are all the delicate shapes that float together on an earthen background.

Joshua Hogan : That was the River, This is the Sea

Joshua Hogan's series of paintings, That was the River, This is the Sea, were created from 2015 to 2016. Like the 1985 acclaimed Waterboys album, This is the Sea, Hogan’s painting process has become second nature. The forms he creates, suspended in a mythical landscape, speak to him. They tell him what to do and where to go, not only in the resulting painting but also in life. Hogan's paintings are poetic. They are intended to portray an abstracted interpretation of our natural and spiritual world in a way that emphasizes how what we create is reflected back to us. Many of his paintings have several incarnations before he feels they are complete, before the painting presents an epiphany of time and memory and the experience that brought him to now.
