Heather Gaudio Fine Art, a contemporary art gallery in New Canaan, Connecticut, announces its upcoming exhibition, Another Blank Space, featuring recent works by Cora Cohen. Opening on October 11, the show features paintings, works on paper and the debut of five new pieces at exhibition including Another Blank Space, 2011; Outside Nature, 2010; Curtain 4, 2012; If I Weren't, 2012 and After Fall, 2012.
Heather Gaudio invites the community to meet Cora Cohen at the artist reception to be held from 6pm to 8pm on October 11. "We are excited to exhibit an artist such as Cora Cohen in our gallery. Her work brings a unique lens to abstraction and, as such, she has an influential impact on contemporary art,” states Gaudio. The exhibition will run from October 11 through November 29, 2012.
Cora Cohen is a New York artist known for paintings that draw on contemporary urban and philosophical sources. Her work, Curtain, 2008, exhibited at the American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York in the Invitational Exhibition of Visual Arts 2012, received a purchase award from the American Academy. It has been acquired by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, New York.
“Cora Cohen is among America’s foremost abstract gestural painters. For over forty years she has been exploring an improvisational approach to art, creating rigorous compositions that unravel the DNA of painting. With an arsenal of materials, including powdered pigment, oil pastel, acrylic paint and graphite, Cohen pushes her medium to distress and breakdown, producing works of unsettling opticality (Far Less Tangible States of Being by Lauri Bortz, Independent Essay, 2006).”
