By working directly with colored pencils and ink wash on unprimed canvas, this workshop presents an approach that challenges the boundaries of painting and drawing: it joins the two in a single process, acting as an alternate or extension to more traditional methods.

This approach demonstrates the significance in personalizing one’s materials and methods to best suit and enhance individual aesthetic sensibility. How one creates is regarded with highlighted importance in relation to what one creates; it is promoting expression by way of means and methods. These media elect the heavy weave of the canvas as the dominant but impersonal mark, distilling positive and negative space evenly, and rendering a particulate profile to the image emerging through the landscape of its woven ground.

Mr. Kogge’s introduction consists of a brief history of his own experience in developing this technique. Other prominent examples will be noted, in particular George Seurat, as well as Paul Cezanne, Marcel Duchamp, Jackson Pollack, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Louise Nevelson, Andy Warhol, and Chuck Close—to name just a few whose departure from traditional methods was critical in realizing their particular vision. A demonstration of materials and procedure follows this discussion. Students may choose to work from photographic sources or from still life.

Robert Kogge studied at the Parson's School of Design and in Europe. He has received numerous fellowships and awards,from institutions including the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. Mr. Kogge has had numerous solo exhibitions at galleries in New York, San Francisco, Nashville, and Birmingham. His work is in the collections of the New Jersey State Museum, Chase Manhattan Bank, Prudential Insurance Co. of America (Newark, NJ), American Interactive Media (Los Angeles, CA), Rutgers University (Newark, NJ), and several other institutions.
