Over the Influence is proud to announce New York artist Greg Bogin’s debut Southeast Asian exhibition Fly Away… at the Bangkok gallery space.
The new series of paintings are a visual love letter to his wife Kyrie and this show is dedicated to her.
“I made all the work for this show after a recent visit to the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The forms, shapes and colors are informed by the island, and were influenced by Polynesian art and culture mixed with fluorescent surf apparel and dreams of an island paradise”, he said.
Bogin’s brightly colored, shaped abstract works evoke a sense of joy, happiness, and optimism with a touch of irony. The shaped canvases with their soft curves and rounded edges in Fly Away… inspire a sense of levitation and airiness and are reminiscent of wings that strive to float away, defy gravity, but linger close to the earth as if weighed down by themselves.
