Statement from the artist: “I paint because I have to.   It has become my pathway to relating to the world around me and inside me. It enables me to share.

‘Some years ago I was taught a design system, originally from Europe, that changed my life. This system helps one break down visual arts to more basic elemental designs, then reassembling them according to the artists particular vision and abilities, never forgetting the original underlying structure of the system. It was suggested that I use paint in the system, as my medium, which I was very reluctant to do: I had never used paints before. It immediately seemed natural. I found my artistic voice and have painted ever since. I cannot help but view things within my system, as it has become integral to my aesthetics and me. It always comes back to design and color, in a never-ending exploration and evolution.

“I have most enjoyed doing larger scale murals for children’s hospitals in the past. I am currently finding ways to do more murals locally, thru grants and other opportunities. It is a goal of mine.”


Mr. Cohen will be present during the opening reception on October 23, and open gallery hours on November 20 and December 3.
