Ardent Heart is a Portrait of the Artist, Joshua Hogan, as a Painter. The
exhibition visually describes Joshua's moral, psychological, and social
growth as a painter. Each painting questions Joshua's origin, authority,
and the relationship between him and family, artistic peers, and society.

Joshua paints the stream of consciousness of his mind; He explores the
process of seeing abstract until clarity results. His artistic style,
which can be described as "l'art informel", emphasizes spontaneity,
irrationality, and freedom of form. Without fear of accidental marks or
unexpected brushstrokes, Joshua paints to escape from both the artistic
and social definition of modernism toward something wholly "other".

Joshua invites you to "meet in the real world the unsubstantional image
which his soul so constantly beholds".

Ardent Heart is on exhibit from November 3rd through November 24th.
