T. J. Hogan, nationally recognized, award-winning artist and alumnus of the ASU School of Art in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.
Hogan, who has exhibited nationally since 2000, has received several sculpture awards and was invited to participate in the Florence Biennale. He received his Bachelor of Arts from ASU and his Master of Fine Arts from California State University, Fullerton.

The passage of time and memory are central concepts in Hogan’s work. In his exhibition,Mnemosyne, he merges sculpture and video, enveloping static, dimensional sculptures of cast glass or handmade Japanese paper with moving images. 
Hogan sees each piece as an experiment that redefines our preconceived notions of sculpture and video. “My realization that everything we see is light reflecting back to our eyes, combined with my memory of the moving lights of the Aurora Borealis, inspired me to explore light, time and motion in my art,” explains Hogan. “Once static surfaces become animated, and video is perceived as a moving canvas, providing me a new way to investigate and narrate the events of a day, a single event or even a memory of an event.”
