Greg Bogin's work is committed to American art history and its pictorial
world in the 60s in a form that is particularly typical of his generation.
Artistically, he is oriented towards Minimal and Pop Art. In terms of form
and colour his works are stimulated by the logos and trade marks of this
Bogin's pictures, pleasing in an intelligent way, do not accept the
Minimalists' canon of parameters and operate on another plane in terms of
content: superficially, they confirm Minimal Art's demand for
self-reference. As well as this, Bogin's pictures combine artistic positions
that had hitherto not been brought together like those of Donald Judd and
Andy Warhol, thus creating a kind of painting that could be called 'Minimal
Greg Bogin's analysis of 60s art and design is shaped by a contemporary view
of the 'Minimal' phenomenon. His transfer to the present means that Minimal
Art loses its programmatic rigour, which makes it more accessible. He is
also following a necessity with his approach to American 'popular' culture.
In a mediatized world, in which every sign is charged with meaning, it
becomes ever more problematical to create the 'meaning-free' images that
Minimal Art demands.
