Meet Houston-Based Artist Joseph Cohen
You are invited to meet Houston-based artist Joseph Cohen.
Presenting New Paintings
Friday, July 21st — 6 to 8 pm
“Of great importance is the act of embracing the human hand and the physical activity of painting. I am deeply involved with the textures of a medium capable of universalizing so much lost intimacy.”
“The incorporation of intereferencing pigments, gold, platinum, silver, diamond dust, and other precious materials articulate the shifted role of color in these latest ‘Propositions’. Paint continues to be used as both a sensual, viscous matter that can flow, drip, and carry a brushstroke’s gesture, yet it is also used mechanically, geometrically, and at times governed by the laws of gravity.”
“Houston has been my home base for the last decade and over this time The Museum of Fine Arts Houston has acquired my artwork, I was awarded best in show at Lawndale’s Big Show, I have given presentations at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, the Menil Collection, and the Children’s Museum, along with many others.”
