As augmented versions of Bogin’s distinctive bright outlines, colored aluminum tubes frame the mirrors halfway, forming a glossy rounded nook for the mirror glass. The three mirrors embrace the same bubbly mode of expression, but are unique in shape, size and color. Their playful silhouettes brim with happiness, whilst their references to visual communication give them an elusive familiarity.
Alongside his fluorescent lines and gradients, Bogin’s works often feature large expanses of uncluttered white space. Here, the mirror takes the place of the empty space, changing its character from blank space to living surface, and leaving it up to the user to fill in the blank. Bogin expands the experience of his work and quite literally reflects that experience back at the world.
Bogin was born in 1965 and holds an FA from Cooper Union, New York. He has had solo shows at Marlborough, Leo Koenig Inc. and the Mary Boone Gallery in New York, Jablonka Galerie in Cologne, Germany, Paolo Curti/Annamaria Gambuzzi & Co in Milan, Italy, and Galerie Bruno Bischofberger in Zurich, Switzerland.
