Benjamin Cohen's paintings are about the visual experimentation of paint on the surface--the purposeful drips and smears intermingle and stir up the surface with snatches of figurative or representative elements. Each canvas is a play on visual perception, the relationship and conflict between representative and abstract painting. Surprisingly, the work begins digitally, as Cohen uses Photoshop to manipulate and determine a painting based on found images such as advertisements and historical images, which he then refers to directly as he transfers the idea onto a painted surface.
