Changing the landscape



Sarah Kogan's current practice revolves around ideas of landscape, abstraction and memory. The emotional content of the work includes implications of death or loss, with subject matter related to images of war, abstracted space or a more internal psychological notion of place. There is often an ambiguity in the use of repeated motifs such as crater, cluster, abyss or illuminated cavity. In addition, Kogan's interest firmly lies within the materiality of the paint; the ground onto which it is applied and the use of these elements as a vehicle to express notions of transcendence, romanticism and the sublime.

Sarah Kogan is a British abstract artist represented by Karsten Schubert London. In addition, she is a trustee of APT Gallery and Studios. Exhibitions include: Take me to the Light, Karsten Schubert Viewing Room, solo online exhibition 2021. From the Corner of my Eye, Karsten Schubert Viewing Room, solo online exhibition 2020.
