In a spontaneous process that straddles chance and control, and suggests fleeting moments in the artist’s studio, Ed Cohen bleeds acrylic paints onto his canvases, letting the pigments express a range of sleek hues as they flow into one another. The compositions often assume circular forms, adopted by Cohen from Buddhist Enso painting, where the circle is used as a spiritual and metaphorical figure. Cohen’s use of the motif is similarly painterly, but more subjective than ideological, reflecting his meditative state in making these paintings.
