artist Claudia Cohen creates her unique sculptures in ceramic and
bronze. By exploring figurative and narrative subjects, her work raises
questions about the human condition with impactful form rather than
confinement to realism.
Claudia's style has been described as comic surrealism — a style that
blends objective reality with mythology and flights of fancy. Claudia
received her art education at The School of The Museum of Fine Arts in
Boston, Massachusetts and then moved to the West Coast and opened her
studio in the artist community of Sausalito, CA on the San Francisco
Her magic-surreal style, unique colored patinas and mixture of humor and
pathos causes art-lovers worldwide to seek-out the mysterious-visions
that her sculptures evoke. In 2008 Sculptor Claudia Cohen was featured
in Turin, Italy at the MIAAO Museum as representative of The School of
California Funk Ceramics.
Beauty, truth lies in the eye of the beholder - and in the mind of the
artist. The bronze and ceramic creations of sculptor Claudia Cohen are
not realistic in any strict sense — yet are precise renditions of her
imagination and engaging articulations of her ruminating sub
consciousness. With her dazzling style which includes meticulous detail
and form, her work brings to life a magical cast of characters - human,
animal, and progeny from a alternative-inviting universe.
In the book Humor in art, the work was
described as Comic Surrealism which aptly sums up her feel for
humor and pathos. Magic Realism is another term often used to
characterize her creative perspective.
There are few artists today who inhabit
such a magical , unified private world and have such a gift in sharing
it with others.
