About the Book
Language of My Soul: the contemporary, abstract paintings of Joshua Hogan presents Hogan’s recent works, “Ardent Heart” and "Ruin of Rationality" in large format print.
Hogan’s abstract paintings are empowered passions. They yield light with their heat, revelation with their warmth, and insight with their inspiration. Using emotion as the key to his paintings, Hogan links intuitive vision and felt meaning into imagination. Through metaphor, Hogan’s paintings ﬁnd their power on the ruins of rationality. The power of the metaphor is that it allows Hogan to imagine abstract concepts in concrete terms. His world of ideas is framed by the only world he knows.
