Bogin Mirror

Loud minimalist expressions and electric colors fuse in Greg Bogin’s abstract mirrors for the Normann x Brask Art Collection, creating objects that straddle the boundary between painting and functional object. His raison d’être is to contribute to the creation of a happy reflection that can be carried back into our daily lives.

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.

Greg Bogin

Optimism and joy permeate artist Greg Bogin’s fluorescent motifs, which are set apart by their bright colors and carefully shaped canvases. Bogin is a native New Yorker and the influences of the New York school of pop art and minimalism can be seen in his work. The same is true of his fascination with visual graphic information and bicycles, which are a passionate hobby of his. Despite his clear-cut style, Bogin works by feeling not dogma, allowing inspiration to come from anywhere and everywhere – from a passing truck to a supermarket.

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.
