Artist Richard Hogan creates his work with airbrush and spray paint and a series of acrylic glazes on natural templates such as leaves, branches, weeds and stems. The style of his work can be described as mystical and earthy—a romantic abstraction of the everyday environment around us. Landscapes are the primary focus of his paintings reflective of boyhood memories in the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas. Richard Hogan began painting in earnest shortly after he retired in 2001. He has a doctorate in physiology and biophysics. His early paintings were traditional and very linear in approach.
