Bruce Cohen is involved with the contemporary realism movement that emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s in reaction to the rising popularity of abstraction. His most iconic subjects are domestic interiors that contain no people, but show signs of inhabitation: papers in disarray, an unmade bed, open windows. When his compositions feature flowers, as they frequently do, they are from his personal garden. Cohen’s style is characteristically hard-edged and crisp, with strong sources of lighting. His influences, however, are widely varied. He attributes his sense of composition and surface to the study of Indian miniature painting, but is perhaps most influenced by Dutch still life painters and the Surrealists.
