KUZANA OGG - Tripping the Light Fantastic

Tripping the Light Fantastic
Opening Reception - Saturday, Feb 2, 6-9 pm

Art speaks a language that transcends borders, and guests to K Contemporary in February will join a truly international conversation that’s engaged minds and imaginations the world over.

“Tripping the Light Fantastic” will offer the insights and impressions of globally acclaimed Santa Fe abstract painter Kuzana Ogg, a keen observer and gifted communicator, whose innate artistic lexicon reflects colors and cultures from the Far East to the American West. A child of Mumbai, Kuzana has collected within herself a versatile visual vocabulary as ideally descriptive of the intimate mysteries of rural China, as of the green hedgerows of Cornwall and the ancient elegance of lotus-scented Sri Lanka.

Kuzana Ogg (b.1971, Bombay, India) is currently in residence at El Zaguan on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, NM. She has participated in residencies in Minnesota, Colombo (Sri Lanka), Tao Hua Tan (China) and most recently at the Cromarty Arts Trust in Scotland. Her paintings have made appearances on the sets of both television shows and feature films, including: “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl”, “Southpaw” and “My All-American”. Kuzana's first solo museum exhibition was “Oil” at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art in 2014. A second solo followed shortly thereafter, “Rev Zero” at the Bakersfield Museum of Art in 2015. Kuzana's work has been exhibited, published, and collected privately and publicly, nationally and internationally.
