“As a gestural abstractionist, I don’t merely accept accidents. Deliberately taking risks,
I cultivate them. I’m interested in what makes abstract paintings inexhaustible in interpretation. To accomplish this I work to establish myriad connections. I work with color in a way that echoes across the distances that separate them, enlivening the surface of the canvas to create a pulse of organic vitality.”

“In his recent essay of my work, art critic Carter Ratcliff described my paintings best as ‘Tumultuous Harmonies.’ Carter continues by saying, ‘A painting by Adam Cohen is like a sudden burst of light. Vision is dazzled by a surface alive with color, swarming with incident. As you approach the canvas, it feels as if it were coming forward to meet you, to immerse you in a field of visual energy.’

“‘In all of Cohen’s recent paintings, the marks’ disruptive force both accentuates and challenges the harmonies that connect underlying colors into a unified field. Calm makes a tentative peace with exhilarated energy and the emotional stakes are raised to new heights of intensity. And in that intensity we sense further possibilities. Cohen has created a way of painting with its future built in.’”
