New York-based artist Ed Cohen uses fluid acrylics to create vibrant and luscious abstract paintings. After carefully selecting the colors and overall form of each piece, Cohen applies the paint freely and instinctively. This captures the natural fluidity and sleek texture unique to this medium.
His finished paintings suggest a nuanced combination of control and spontaneity. Cohen’s acrylic marks are surprisingly expressive. The paintings have a sense of energy, emotion and attitude. Though his paintings recall the splattered paint style of the abstract expressionists, they draw on Zen Buddhist philosophy.
