About the Artist
Wendy Cohen is a visual artist, educator, and curator based in Brooklyn, NY. She works across a variety of media, most recently in sculptural textile installations and sculptural paintings. Constructed from yarn, fabric, and found or reused materials, her pieces are abstract, yet grounded in the figure. These forms embody anxiety and offer comfort, becoming both objects that hold tension and spaces to be held in. This embodiment of tension, all the spaces between holding together and falling apart, is a thread that runs through her work.
Wendy graduated from Brown University with a B.A. in Visual Art in May 2019. Her work has been exhibited in venues such as Chashama Matawan (NJ), Kimmel Galleries (NYC), Riverfront Art Gallery (Yonkers, NY), Granoff Center for the Creative Arts (Providence, RI), List Art Center (Providence, RI), Brown/RISD Hillel (Providence, RI), Greenpoint Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), Purpl Crayon Gallery (Hastings, NY), and Interchurch Center (NYC). In January 2020 she was a resident for sculpture at the Vermont Studio Center.
Her studio practice is complemented by her work in museums and the nonprofit arts. As a curator, gallery preparator, artist assistant, and more, she is passionate about research, design, and community engagement. She is currently a teaching artist at the Church Street School for Music & Art and KoKo NYC.
