Joshua Hogan Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Joshua Hogan is a contemporary abstract painter from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He utilizes an alla prima technique, applying wet paint on top of wet paint to achieve a fluid aesthetic. The paint creates a mix of runs, drips, and splatters, slowly forming spontaneous and interactive shapes he calls “wayfarers,” a term inspired by the writing of Kalhil Gibran. Joshua describes his creative process as “giving form to emotion.” The artist is passionate about living an artistic life across all channels of his career. When he is not painting, Joshua is an art consultant and the co-owner of a Pittsburgh gallery that supports emerging and mid-career artists. He also works professionally in the film and television industry as a scenic artist, and has worked on productions including The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Jack Reacher, and Marvel’s The Avengers.

    Artist Statement

    Joshua Hogan’s paintings start wet on wet with fluid mark making - a mix of runs, drips, and splatters - slowly becoming mysterious shapes he calls “wayfarers”. As Hogan paints, he turns the picture plane until his shapes begin to interact. Using a limitless palette, he layers transparent color to create perceptual depth. He intends for his shapes to appear as if in continuous movement, traveling through a vast, abstract landscape. Hogan uses a variety of painting techniques, from a dry brush over wet paint to a palette knife with textured color. These techniques emphasize his wayfarers. They communicate feeling through the glow of paint.
