Philippe Cognée Biography

Philippe Cognée's work is seen as a type of ordeal for himself, where energy consumption is high. As how a painting is obtained at the end of countless struggles and efforts, like how it is demanded of the artist to give his best as expected of athletes, but in the end, talent is crucial. As all hard works are rewarded, such rewards are an exchange of talent with effort. For Cognée, if there is hard work, there is an equivalent sense of ecstasy. To him his paintings express human sensibility, it liberates one from all psychological oppression, and is an ideal medium to paint substance regardless of the subject. To go a step further, the artist absorbs himself as a part of the painting to be seen as a symbol of value or a structure of such a symbol, regardless of the possibility of identification.
