American painter Greg Bogin creates bright, bold and clean paintings that are fun, carefree and sure to lighten the emotional load of their viewers.
Bogin's colour palette is small and selective, focusing on vibrant, peppy hues and controlled colour transitions. His analogous selections follow the curves that have been cut into the canvas and emphasize the calculated undulations. Their simplicity, colour, and shape, bring to mind childhood toys, such as wooden puzzles and plastic stacking rings. In an interview with Ridley Howard, Bogin explains, "my work[s] are about joy, optimism and happiness... sort of a refuge from darkness."
This joy is apparent in Greg Bogin's title choices, such as "Double Happiness" and "Sunny Disposition." We would love to view these works in an exhibition, as we're sure their scale, light, and emotional impact is most effective in person.
