Ridley Howard interviews painter Greg Bogin whose show Sunny Disposition is on view at Marlborough Chelsea, New York through July 31, 2015.

Bogin comments: "I have a long-standing interest in logos and signage and their ability to communicate a wide range of information in a compact image. By coopting parts of that language I am able to communicate non-specific references and influences in a way that make them accessible but still mysterious... I like the tension created by referencing a language that we expect to deliver some sort of information or message but keeping that message elusive to create a more contemplative moment."
