Installation shots from my exhibition at the Hunterdon Museum of Art. June 10-September 9, 2012
except from a review by Ralph Bellantoni For the Daily Record:
“Precarious Exchange’’ features Nancy Cohen’s growing, flowing, sprawling
sculptures made from glass combined with resin, wax, metal and other materials.
She wields her art as an investigative tool for penetrating into the principles
of nature and the conflicts at the heart of the human condition.
Cohen’s work radiates along several tangents. “Falling is Flying II’’
improvises on the theme of flowing water, while her “P(n,k) (combinatorics)’’
installation associates molecular structures with personal memories and
perceptions. In the latter, an abundance of fossilized atomic shapes drift and
gather across the gallery.
Cohen manipulates the interplay between surface and structure, fragility and
mass, form and intent. But no matter how deep she delves into formal concerns
and environmental nuances, the Jersey City artist never strays far from the
personal and intimate.
