Toni Cogdell is a fine artist based in Bristol. Her current practice focuses on the human condition. Solitary figures who are far from alone. Moments are captured, a form fusing with paint, marks and textures, that act as a portal to spaces behind knowledge. A sensory sea of feeling, a self beneath the belief of the self.
“These themes are the crux of my work, meandering across the territory of the Human Condition, exploring the constant dialogue, contrasts and tensions between the lives we lead and the lives we feel, our outer and inner worlds, the spaces between the parts. Exploring our individuation as well as our innate connections to nature, time and ultimately to each other. Telling the story of us from the inside out, through painting. Somewhere between a wish and a call to arms”.
