Daisy Cohen, New York City
The work of Daisy Cohen reveals itself through
motion propelled by color. There are soft curves and dreamy hues,
meanwhile strong bursts of energetic color contrast with the depths
found in darker hues. Her paintings evoke emotion and wonder in
the viewer, prompting contemplative thought or perhaps just intensifying
ones mood. Once you see her abstract paintings, you will join
her odyssey, the need to explore all that is beyond our reach yet
exists within our souls and imaginations.
After years in the fashion industry as an illustrator,
this New York City-based artist decided to take a different path.
Turning to fine art, she explores visual effects of oil and acrylic
paints on plastic, glass, canvas and board. The resulting works
evoke space, the organic world, time and mystery.
One such process involves complex layering in a backwards
method. She starts painting from behind glass or plastic, beginning
with the layer that you will see first and then building onto the
depth of the background. She is painting through the ebb and flow
of her emotions, as there is no way to know how the work will look
aesthetically or what message it conveys until complete.
Daisys work has been exhibited at the Venezuelan
Consulate, Warburg Tribeca and Agora Galleries in NYC. Her collectors
include Mr. and Mrs. George Manahan, Conductor, New York Opera;
Patrick Delaney, Vice President, UBS Bank; Ken Schwartzreich, President,
Cubic Consulting; and Tony
