During his time in Berlin, the young painter will work on a new group of large paintings, extending his recent series of figures in studio settings.
Interested in the tension between painting’s surface and the subject of its depiction, Cohn states: “I am to create a scene which has both a strong objective aspect – a strong and communicative composition, which is a springboard into an interesting painting experience; as well as a deep subjective aspect – relating to a specific emotional narrative.”
Art lovers and professionals interested in SomoS resident artist Adam Cohn’s work will have occasion to view his work in a presentation at SomoS, and take part in an upcoming workshop conducted by the artist at SomoS.
