Artist Statement

LEO KOGAN NOW

Now is no longer now. True now is almost impossible, now cannot be without immediately being recalled. Now is therefore a continuous and ultimately tedious repetition, always in recall and never fully being. On its own now cannot do much. It’s dependent on soon and before, on a future moment in which another now will come or on a time in the past when now was then. We comprehend now as the result of what already took place and as the introduction to what’s going to happen. That’s how we absorb the shock of change, the repeated pounding of the moment. Only what really is new – unexpected and possibly affecting the future – is keenly considered and added to our comprehension. Seeing is this: the eye registers movement, what stands still is taken for granted. The brain is always aware of the status quo and is only interested in updates. . ..
