Sculpture: Steel, Metal, Paint on Steel, Iron.
Peter Cohen is a sculpture artist based in the Boston area. Working primarily with found, industrial materials such as structural steel, his work explores the tension and balance between geometric rigidity and organic fluidity, material weight and the impression of weightlessness, as well as the standardization of component parts, countered by the irreproducibility of natural forms. With traces of assemblage, much of Peter’s process involves the act of improvisation, reflecting his interest in the unpredictable nature of human and natural expression. The process involves finding the intersection of those elements in a way that looks and feels natural, almost random. This gives the work a sense that it has been discovered or witnessed in a naturally occurring found state. His work also takes cues from religious, cultural and spiritual symbols and objects. In many ways, the materials seem to give him guidance, providing some level of insight that helps determine their composition.
