About Jeanine Cohen
Jeanine Cohen was born in 1951 in Brussels (Belgium.). She currently lives and works in Brussels (Belgium).
In the beginning Jeanine Cohen worked with canvas and acrylic painting but since 2000 she has been experimenting with diverse materials like polyester, polypropylene and wooden structures instead of canvas. But what always rest present in her work is the fluorescent, vibrant colour that appears as a source of light and has a visual impact at the observer.
The idea of her work has a reference to a frame without using a canvas. The artworks themselves can be seen as an architecture of light and colour, as an three dimensional structure that opens its borders.
For Cohen painting is a field of research and experimentation around three parameters: The application of paint, the relationship between color and light and the delimitation of the pictorial surface.
Jeanine Cohen’s works have been exhibited in museums and galleries in Portugal, Iceland, Belgium, Germany, France, Poland in solo exhibitions as well as group exhibitions. Her work also consists of site-specific projects for corporate and private institutions. Jeanine Cohen’s works are part of private, public and corporate collections in many countries.
