Artist / Educator multi-disciplinary media arts
A B O U T
Conceptual, abstract-expressionist, colorist, minimalist, avant-garde, anti-war environmental activist. I work with elements, language and abstract; using contemporary and traditional media: drawing, painting, photography and video-art installations. Dealing with abstract representational often triggered by language, and experimental use of multi-media, times study of a single hue or a minimal form of structure.
Influenced by dance and jazz, shamanism and zen, dada and Art School of New York, the ancient Jewish Kabbalah and Gutenberg's Movable type, science and technology, I distinguish visual communication and sound as my first language out of five.

"Style of Fogelman's work is mainly abstract expressionist with emphasis on experimental use of unconventional tools and techniques. The work's primary focus is on energy, color and surface." Grace Munakata
