September 7 - 28, 2019
SAN FRANCISCO - Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Evergreen, a solo exhibition by San Francisco-based painter Kim Cogan. Returning for his second solo exhibition with the gallery, the new body of oil paintings explore time and memories of a city in flux.
Kim Cogan’s masterfully balanced oil paintings occupy a space between the familiar and foreign, nostalgic and contemporary, detailed and abstracted. Much like the ubiquitous fog blanketing San Francisco, Cogan’s subjects emerge from misty memories occupying a timeless space. Emotive marks commingle with precise renderings, grounding the viewer in hazy, cinematic scenes of the city.
Each piece “explores the passage of time, integrating both present and remembered subjects.” An ode to San Francisco’s disappearing landscapes, Evergreen preserves pieces of the artist’s memory while acknowledging the most enduring quality of the city is change.
Please join us for Evergreen, opening September 7th with an evening reception from 6pm - 9pm, the artist will be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view through September 28th. For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
