Anna Bogatin

Anna Bogatin's works are the product of patient accretion of marks, analogous to weaving or chanting with its repetition and subtle variation. Her short strokes become columns and fields that are bisected by one thin luminous light strip reminiscent of a horizon. Light as ground or ground as light seems very much in keeping with the Buddhist meditation practice that inspires Bogatin’s works. Like her predecessors, Agnes Martin, Barnet Newman and Ad Reinhardt, she is concerned with art as a communicator of emotion and harmony of form.
