Bernard Cohen, one of Britain´s foremost abstract artists, had his first one-man exhibition with the Angela Flowers Gallery in May 1998.
Cohen´s work is conspicuous for its complex beauty.... Large canvases are filled with interlocking, interwoven, circling patterns of bright and seductive colour in ways that have evolved in fascinating style over time. The latest paintings bear remarkable testimony to the artist´s vision, technique and ability to achieve powerful expression of emotions and thoughts through abstract imagery and form.
Bernard Cohen´s distinction as a teacher parallels his eminence as an artist. In that capacity he has been connected with the Slade since 1967, becoming Slade Professor of Fine Art and Director of the Slade School in 1988. He lives and works in London (UK).
