Faces by Sylvia Cohen

Excavating imagery from an array of sources, I continually draw from photographs as well as my ever-expanding collection of source material. Scanning my photos and manipulating them to focus on specific details is the beginning of my process. I love to play with light, color and orientation; the negative space becomes just as intriguing to me as the paint applied on the canvas.
Color originates from elements in nature and when used to decorate the body, it becomes more than a hue, it’s a history.
