Joyful. Expressive. Gorgeous. This large abstract painting is by Adam Cohen. The American artist is known for his provocative use of colour, rich texture and gestural form. Cohen favours applying thick layers of acrylic in a melange of colour—this piece is rendered in blues, pinks, purples, orange, white and black. Thoroughly contemporary.
“Colour is a wild animal. Seventy-five percent of your concentration is taken up by colour.” Adam Cohen
He studied at Philadelphia’s Tyler School of Art and lived and painted in Rome for a 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, Asia and most recently in Amsterdam and Venice.
