About the Work
Alex Bradley Cohen renders intimate portraits that blend "dutiful representation and exuberant abstraction," as noted in The Brooklyn Rail's review of his 2017 solo exhibition at Nicelle Beauchene. While Cohen employs perspective shifts and subjective coloring à la Cubism and Abstract Expressionism, his works remain rooted in acute reality, with the oft-domestic interiors serving as glimpses into the sitter's occupied psychological space. The result is a totality of feeling; Cohen's subjects coexist with their environment, bringing into question the rich combination of forces that create one's identity, allowing creator, subject, and audience to explore and unpack their personal identity through relating and empathizing with others.
Alex Bradley Cohen has held solo exhibitions at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery (New York), Mana Contemporary (Chicago) and Slow Gallery (Chicago). He was in a two-person show with Alberto Aguilar at Comfort Station (Chicago) Selected group exhibitions include forthcoming shows at University Art Museum at University of Albany and Heaven Gallery (Chicago) as well as exhibitions at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery (New York), Andrew Rafacz (Chicago), YOGA (Chicago) and Socrates Sculpture Park (Long Island City, NY). Cohen received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He currently lives and works in Chicago.
