Sarah Kogan

Artist
Sarah Kogan works as an artist and educator from her studio in the East End of London. Her work forms part of numerous private and corporate collections and paintings of the obliteration of Passchendaele have been exhibited extensively. Personal stories and narrative have been a recurrent theme, with the use of imagined journeys and the psychological abstract nature of landscape at its heart. In addition, she is a lecturer on the groundbreaking Art of Psychiatry undergraduate module in conjunction with the Bethlem Royal Hospital and the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and a contributor to Image-Movement-Story International Symposium hosted by the Practice as Research Group at Roehampton University in June 2014. Currently, she is developing Changing the Landscape, her Arts Council of England and National Lottery funded multimedia arts project to mark the centenary of The Battle of the Somme in 2016. The project interprets the archive of her great uncle, Rifleman Barney Griew, a mapmaker who died on the first day of The Battle of the Somme.
