Paul Balmer Cityscapes

“Two of my favorite painting subjects (at the moment) are still lifes and cityscapes. I like that the subject doesn’t have to be that interesting to make an interesting painting, meaning that the best still life and cityscape painters are really alchemists. Ordinary pots and pans or congested and polluted city views can be turned into paintings of great beauty.” Read the rest of this entry »

Kim Cogan is a Fransisco based painter born in Pusan, Korea in 1977, a very young and promising artist.  His work is mostly focused on representing the intimacies of urban life. His refined oil paintings are somehow balancing between realism and abstraction. People tend to associate his work with photorealism, but Cogan paintings however have texture, are rich and tactile and can not be labeled as photorealism.

The thing i love about his paintings is the absence of the subjects, depopulated, it’s like he opens a door for you to walk on the street or just watch silently the landscape of the city or a common building that it seems so familiar and safe. There is no one, just you an the lonely streets and buildings, and Cung fulfilled  one of my dreams.
