Adam Cohen
Zen Garden - bright, floral, impasto, abstract expressionist, acrylic on canvas

2020

About the Item

A floral motif in shades of pink, blue, green and lemon is used in an all over pattern by artist Adam Cohen in this delightfully bright painting. Cohen intersects the language of Abstract Expressionism with narrative to re-invent the experience of action painting in a contemporary context. The artist is known for his applications of thick impasto, applied in layers that he cuts through and moves while the pigments are wet.  Cohen studied at Philadelphia’s Tyler School of Art and lived and painted in Rome for a year. He was one of the first artists to use Photoshop, which helped launch his career as an illustrator. After many successful years as an illustrator he returned to his first love, painting, and initially specialized in figurative work. In 2012, Cohen began making abstract paintings, freeing himself from what he felt were limitations of a representational practice. Abstract Expressionists, such as de Kooning and Pollock, now inspire Cohen’s artistic practice. The artist lives and paints in the Catskills, NY, exhibiting extensively in the US, Europe, Asia, and most recently in Amsterdam and Venice.
