Adam Cohen
Sirocco - earthy, impasto, colourful, abstract expressionist, acrylic on canvas

2019

About the Item

Layered impasto swaths in a palette of orange, pink, white and grey are incised with dynamic sharp lines in this powerful composition by Adam Cohen. The painting is aptly titled Sirocco, a hot wind blowing from North Africa across the Mediterranean to southern Europe. 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.
