Artist Talk

Claudia Kogachi’s work tends towards the personal. The artist often places an emphasis on everyday and leisure activities, using them to allude to emotional experiences. Early paintings show her engaging in competitive pastimes with her mother, such as boxing, chess, and table tennis, these serving as metaphors for the combative dimension of the relationship between parent and child. Lately, Kogachi has been making pictorial rugs with tufting guns. She began doing so during the nationwide lockdown last year, when she found herself with limited access to painting supplies.
