Rob's Pop-Impressionism reexamines the icons of popular culture through iterative reproductions using both conventional and experimental techniques. Influenced by impressionism and minimalism, Hogan uses paint and color to isolate the icon from its cultural context, creating new images that focus on the essence of the subject matter. Through art fairs, salons, and working in a variety of open spaces, Hogan challenges the public to consider the stability of its beloved icons by reimagining them into a new cultural mythology.
