Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cora Cohen (born 1943) is an American Abstract Painter. Cohen lives and works in Long Island City, New York. Her works are in many major public collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Swedish State Art Council, The Ulla and Heiner Pietzsch Collection, Berlin, The Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, and Yale University, New Haven. Cora Cohen was born in New York City. She attended the High School of Music and Art (1957-60) and Bennington College (1960-64), where she studied with Paul Feeley and Lawrence Alloway. At Bennington she was influenced by the work of Frederick Keisler, a guest lecturer and exhibitor, and Tony Smith, who taught there. Cohen was Artist in Residence in Painting at the University of Pennsylvania from 1969-70. She then returned to Bennington College as a graduate student (1970-1972) where she studied with Richard Haas and met sound artist Liz Phillips who introduced her to new music, in particular that of Pauline Oliveros and Steve Reich. In this work Cohen found reinforcement for using traditional art materials to create decompositional abstractions.show more
