|In 2003, Logan Hagege traveled to Cape Cod to explore the views of the
Atlantic and to study and paint in the same places as some of his
favorite artists such as Frank Weston Benson. |
Hagege, who lives in Southern California, is known for his figurative
seascapes and beach scenes, and in Cape Cod explored the mood of the
ocean and the changes of the seasons. The ocean views from the
Cape seem to go on forever giving the viewer a sense of loneliness and
wonderment about the sea.
In Cape Cod, Hagege also saw a change in his palette to more muted
tones, notably different from his bright colorful views of the beach in
Hagege paints to express the feelings of the landscape, "If I could put
feelings into words I would be a poet. But I am a painter and express
feelings through pigment."

|Biography from Trailside Galleries:|
|Logan Maxwell Hagege, b. 1980, Los Angeles, California, (United States)|
Logan Hagege’s interest and ability in fine art were evident early on. Traditionally trained in a local Los Angeles classic atelier program, his studies involved spending more than six hours per day drawing and painting live models. Hagege also studied privately with Steve Huston and Joseph Mendez.
Inspiration for his subjects began at an early age with visits to his grandmother who lived in the California desert. Extensive travels and extended stays in various landscapes in the American Southwest also contributed to his repertoire of subjects. Hagege’s evolution from landscape to figure and now a combination of both was a natural progression in his art. The American Southwest comes to life in angular images that capture the spare beauty of an arid landscape and of an ancient and enduring Native American culture shaped by the extremes of its environment.

|Biography from Watts Fine Art:|
|Logan Maxwell Hagege excels in depicting the human figure and landscapes, drawing inspiration for his subjects from his native Southern California, as well as his extensive travels to view various landscapes in the American Southwest and the Northeast Coast of the United States. |
Hagege had an early interest in animation and was encouraged to enroll in a local art school, Associates in Art. His interest quickly moved from animation to fine art while attending life drawing classes. Hagege later entered the Academy`s Advanced Masters Program, which was modeled after French Art Schools where students spend more than six hours each day studying live models. Hagege also studied privately under artists Steve Huston and Joseph Mendez.
Hagege finds encouragement and guidance in masters of the past such as Gustav Klimpt, N.C. Wyeth, T.W. Dewing and Maynard Dixon. His work is driven by the belief that evolution in art is never ending and he constantly challenges himself to come up with new ideas and new ways of looking at the same subject.
Hagege is a member of The Society of American Artists.

|Biography from Wendt Gallery:|
|At only 22 years old, Logan Hagege has already established himself in the Contemporary California Impressionist Movement. He is as a member of Oil Painters of America, and a Mentor Member of the California Art Club. This year (2002) he received an honorable mention award at the California Club''s 8th Annual Mission San Juan Capistrano Paint-Out.|
Since studying at the L.A. Art Academy, Logan has devoted his time to painting his native Southern California, as well as subjects from his travels across America and Europe. He finds encouragement and guidance in master artists from the past such as Fechin, Sargent, Sorolla, Benson, and Zorn, as well as modern day masters such as Joseph Mendez, Steve Huston, Scott Burdick, Dan McCaw, and John Asaro.
Logan''s painting is driven by the never-ending process of art, and quotes one of his favorite artists, Nicholas Fechin, who said "Art, like the whole of our life, submits to the eternal law of change, and any attempts to stop it at one particular level are like vain efforts to stop time itself."
