Paul Hogg is a painter and printmaker. Born in Yorkshire in 1960, Paul graduated from the Painting School of the Royal College of Art in 1989. His work has been shown in various solo and group exhibitions and is included in private collections in Britain, Europe, the USA and Australia. He has been the recipient of several awards for his work including the TSB Bank Travel Award, the Oppenheim John Downes Memorial Award and the Eames Fine Art Prize. Paul lives and works in Hackney.
His paintings and prints are non-narrative and represent landscape spaces. Although a starting point for the works might be people and places he has known, through the process of drawing, painting and printing he is concerned with working toward the formation of a more abstract, symbolic space. Through the architecture of the image, its surface appearance, and the harmony of tonal values within colour, he seeks to fix feelings about place that have filtered through layers of memory and concern with the landscape and country through which he wandered freely as a child.
'I am is seeking to produce images that achieve balance and harmony and summon a sense of stillness.'
