  • About the work

On paper, Cognée uses color as well as black and white, charcoal, wash, ink, watercolor or even encaustic. Philippe Cognée insists on the idea that works on paper are not preliminary works.

About the Artists

1957 , France

Philippe Cognée was born in 1957 in Nantes, France, where he lives and works. His paintings use wax that is heated and crushed, producing a blurred effect and raising questions such as the thinning away of the image and the human condition in the light of humans’ relationship to their urban environment.
