Eileen Hogan is a painter whose work has been exhibited widely in the UK and US. In 2020, the poet Craig Raine chose Eileen Hogan:Personal Geographies for his ‘book of the year’. He wrote:
"… Hogan’s paintings are representational without being pedantically literal, swift, fluent, inspired in their choice of subjects, inspired in their laconic solutions, a million miles from academic painting, modest and immensely covetable… The book’s cover shows an impulse-watering sprinkler in urgent action. It is better than David Hockney’s bravura bigger splash — a justly famous capture of the impossibly evanescent. She can do people, too. Adam Phillips, the psychoanalyst, is here, with his Bob Dylan impulse-watering artfully sprinkled hair — painted in 2014, just before it more or less vanished."
