About the Work

This square canvas by Cohen is packed with layers of deep crimson, orange, pink, purple with licks of green, lemon yellow and octane blue. Seen through the atmosphere of earth during a lunar eclipse, the moon can appear red-orange – a natural phenomenon that nonetheless has given rise to contemporary prophecies of the apocalypse. The artist interprets the phenomenon of the blood moon in a hot allover impasto that explodes off the canvas in all directions. Cohen skillfully intersects the language of heroic Abstract Expressionism with narrative to re-invent the experience of action painting in a contemporary context.
