David Ogle

The immediacy and linear quality of drawing naturally lends itself to Ogle’s way of working. A pulse of movement is captured across a surface, with viewers becoming implicated in the works time-based process by visually tracing the forms progression from beginning to end. This build up of a constant form often affords his work illusionary three dimensional qualities, with geometric shapes multiplying to create optical depth across a flat plane.

Ogle’s sculptural work aims to take the fundamental properties of drawing (with a focus on flatness and line) and transfer these into new spatial situations. Physical spaces are intersected by lines and forms that optically flatten an environment, each step the viewer takes offers a new perspective on extruding entities that seem to discard any kind of three dimensional physicality.

Creating an object with depthless properties, Ogle’s work appears to be out of the flow of a regular environment, a virtual object dragged into a physical space.

As well as being an artist member in Kinetica’s membership scheme, Ogle became one of Kinetica’s represented artists in the summer of 2011. He has two profiles on the Kinetica website, under both our represented artist profiles and in our members section.
