Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is thrilled to announce an exhibition of new glass sculpture and works on/of paper by Nancy Cohen. This is her third exhibition with the gallery.
Cohen works concurrently in two media: She creates organic sculptural forms from pieces of glass, and she creates drawings on hand-made paper using pigmented paper pulp as the drawing medium. These two ways of working are closely related both formally and conceptually. Both the paper pulp and the sculpted glass function as the substrate for drawing lines, and both mediums are the physical embodiment of the essential thread that unites all of Cohen’s work– the relation between fragility and strength.
