Kuzana Ogg




Kuzana Ogg was born in India then grew up in England before settling in America she works in series of paintings often with a botanical theme though these ones that I have selected remind me of dress patterns.
"Color and its application remain the focal point of my work. Textile design devices such as block print, ikat and repeats are also prevalent here. However, in the current work, pattern is disrupted; partially obliterated in some areas, completely articulated in others. Mark and imagery are developed through an indirect method of ghosting colors and line fragments. This layering and attention to stroke, produce a lustrous and complex surface, open to interpretation.” Kusana Ogg
