Featured Artist – Elizabeth Cohen

October 20, 2023 - December 13, 2023

Elizabeth Cohen is an artist in the Boston area, creating wheel-thrown and altered functional and sculptural work in porcelain, as well as mixed media with natural material such as wasp nest, mushroom spores and mulberry paper. Organic elements in nature, such as flowers, fruits, seeds, shells, and plants, inform her work. She explores cycles of birth, life and death, growth and decay, rhythm and change. She also explores varied metaphorical nuances, such as family, security and comfort, in nesting sets. She holds a B.A. in English from Tufts University and a M.A. T. from Simmons College.
Elizabeth’s statement on her exhibition at the Bacon: Long mulberry tree fibers of hanji paper allow me to sculpt with my hands and water (my version of the Korean traditional joomchi technique). I seek to capture “komorebi”, the Japanese word for sunlight filtering through the trees, as well as other feelings from the natural world. I layer and abrade the paper, allowing for depth of color, light and design.
