We knew from the moment we first stepped into Syndey Cohen's studio that we wanted to share her work. With a range of colors as vast as a language and the way she layers, hides, reveals, spatters, swipes or carefully mottles the surfaces, each piece forms a love poem to seeing and feeling. Original, masterful, and vastly kind, this is art to share a life with.
Cohen has exhibited in San Francisco, Oakland & Berkeley, Atlanta, British Columbia, Iowa and Chicago, and is in public collections in Boston and Iowa, and private collections all over the world. She is a Senior Adjunct Professor at the California College of the Arts. She also teaches a long running figure drawing class at the Urban School of San Francisco. She has a MA/MFA from the University of Iowa, Iowa Arts Fellow and a BFA from California College of Arts and Crafts.
