Yvette Cohen

My paintings are large geometric masses of color that span entire walls. They are oil paint and wood dowels, on shaped canvas. They appear sculptural, yet mount flat on the wall.

I explore color and shape in its pure and simple essence unrelated to external representation. However, the emotions that I experience when I work are driven by real places like beaches and landscapes. In these large open spaces I feel the monumentality of the world. I want to embrace this monumentality, this infinite air and the density of time past.

These pieces seemingly defy gravity and appear to exist in a boundless space.
