This four part workshop presents experimental methods for expanding abstraction’s visual vocabulary. Each class will begin with a slideshow, followed by instructor demonstrations and discussion of technique. Methods introduced include; working with ink on paper, deconstructing and reassembling paintings, adding observational elements into your work, ‘radical veiling’ to simplify composition, combining collage with paint and sanding layered pieces. Prior experience with abstract painting recommended.

Born in Chicago in 1961, Zoë Cohen was strongly affected by the classic graphic influences of a mid-century urban environment. Everyday exposure to modern architecture, photography, painting, sculpture and minimalist 1960’s design made a deep impression. Zoë’s abstract painting springs from her lifelong fascination with mid-century modern art and design, Abstract Expressionism and The New York School painters. She continues to be inspired by contemporary artists of all kinds. History, art history, social history, illustration, literature, theater, music, dance, photography, and film all inform her work. www.zcohenstudio.com
