Adam Cohen
Breaking the Surface - bright, airy, abstract expressionist, acrylic on canvas

2018

$6,100

About

Swirling passages and drips of teal, gold and white coalesce at a central point in this action painting by Adam Cohen. Cohen intersects the language of heroic Abstract Expressionism with narrative to re-invent the experience of action painting in a contemporary context. Here Cohen revels in the emerging colours of spring. New York based artist Adam Cohen creates work alive with the gestural influences of the abstract expressionists generation. His thick luscious, strokes are applied in layers to create striations of color. Often his bright colors break through the surface by cutting back into the paint while it is wet. Cohen studied at Philadelphia’s Tyler School of Art and lived and painted in Rome for year. After many successful years as an illustrator he returned to his first love, painting. Adam Cohen lives and paints in the Catskills, NY. Cohen has exhibited extensively in the US, Europe and Asia, most recently in Amsterdam and Venice.
