Mark Cohen’s Work from the 1970s and ’80s Exhibited at Bruce Silverstein Gallery


NEW YORK, NY.- Bruce Silverstein Gallery announces representation and a new exhibition of the work of Mark Cohen. The exhibition, Lost/Found, features Cohen’s work from the 1970s and ‘80s that focuses on the artist’s extensive fascination with minute, cast-off elements of human effects—garbage or other small details—which Cohen makes monumental through his stimulating compositions possessing emotional weight and ineffable meaning. Renowned for his images of cropped figures shot at close range and strobe lit, previous exhibitions have portrayed Cohen as fixated on the human form. Lost/Found focuses on images that are non-figurative, an aspect of the artist’s work that has never before been the subject of an exhibition. Mark Cohen’s perspicacity enables him to hone in on the slightest detail, aberration, quality, texture, shape, or occurrence
