About The Artist
PAMELA KOGEN/STUDIO 306A
My abstract paintings and drawings are inspired by, and a playful reaction to, my environment. Spending several months a year living on a sailboat, immersed in a continually shifting landscape, has greatly influenced my work. It reminds me over and over again of the constancy of change and perception and the ephemeral nature of capturing a fleeting moment or emotions.
I am a mixed media artist and often incorporate textiles into drawings and paintings-for their form, texture or cultural references. Many of the drawings hanging in my studio are from ‘Walking my line’, a series of 100 consecutive daily drawings completed this past May. In this series I explored and expanded my vocabulary of mark-making taking my line for a walk wherever it would lead, reacting in the moment without hesitation.
Color is a passion and integral part of my work. In my recent paintings I have migrated the free spirit of my line into the compositions as gesture and form-fully embracing color.
“As an artist, playing with an arsenal of color-my brush and crayons magic wands, creating is the ultimate freedom.”
I live in San Francisco with my husband and faithful dog, and work out of my studio in this historic ICB building in Sausalito.
