A celebration of confetti thick colours, run through to create a scaffold of horizontal lines and areas of built, textured impasto. Cohen is a New Yorker steeped in the heroic vision of Abstract Expressionism. In this piece, Cohen imbues the language of action painting with a joy for life evident in the riot of pastel colour that moves the eye restlessly from left to right. Adam Cohen born in New Jersey in 1959, studied with artist Lilian Marzell, a friend of Willem de Kooning. Cohen earned his BFA at Philadelphia's Tyler School of Art at Temple University which included a year of painting in Rome. Returning to New York he studied at the School of Visual Arts, the Arts Students League and Parsons School of Design. Cohen has exhibited in Italy, Holland, New Jersey, New York and Ontario. His work is in numerous private collections. In 2015, he was awarded the International Art Prize Giuseppe Gambino in Venice, Italy.
