MARLENE KOHN

Modalities of Expression
November 3 – November 24, 2015
Reception: Thursday, November 5, 2015 6-8 PM

Marlene Kohn's mixed-media abstracts are intricate, intimate, and beautifully attuned to many branches of aesthetic traditions. Kohn creates large geometric patterns that contain an incredible amount of smaller moving parts. At first glance, the pieces are easily accessible in their bright colors and bold, graphic lines. Upon closer look, one sees that Kohn uses subtle changes in mark-making that cause her composition to ripple and quake. Her colors vary across a wide spectrum. Each shape is noticeably hand-made, making them all the more personal for their imperfections.

Above all, Kohn's textures are what inject her work with energy. She works with canvas, thread, wood, metal, and a variety of found materials such as twigs, nails, and industrial roofing paper, and often includes needlework in her pieces. Her palette grows as the composition takes shape, eventually offering a world of color. 

Kohn was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and currently lives in Miami, Florida. She has exhibited in Mexico and France as well as the United States, and is a co-founder of the Fund 4 Design & Art Education.
