About

Yvette Cohen makes art that transforms space. Her oil paintings of geometric masses of color on shaped canvas look sculptural, but mount flat on the wall. Paintings become objects in their own right, to fluctuate between flatness and volume, bridging the divide between sculpture and painting. Often grouped in diptychs, triptychs, or more, the surrounding space is activated, so that the entire wall becomes the canvas. Inspired by vast open landscapes. Paintings float in space. Cohen uses her tools…shape, color, line, and space to connect to the outside world. She strive to work beyond the boundaries of the familiar to have the work evolve naturally. It’s a wabi-sabi thing. Process is visible. Brushstrokes, and underlying brushstrokes, reveal themselves. It’s not perfect. The work keeps on growing. Approaching art as a natural evolution, Yvette is driven by the anticipation of creating something entirely new that has never existed before. Her paintings and drawings are flat, yet define volumes and space. Viewers are drawn in to experience this space beyond the borders of paper and canvas. Yvette was born in Cairo, Egypt and raised in Paris and Montreal. In 1976 she received a BFA from Concordia University in Montreal where she studied with Guido Molinari. After moving to New York City she continued her education attending classes at the Art Student’s League, the School of Visual Arts and the Whitney seminars. For a year she worked in lithography at the Bob Blackburn Printmaking Workshop. In 1983 she established Plum Graphics Inc., a greeting card company, recognized for its unique images and products. There she received several nominations and a Louie award for her work. Louie awards are the Oscars of the greeting card industry. In 2004 she returned to the studio to pursue her fine art full time. She lives and works in New York City.
