“When Light merges with Art” – Solo Art Show by Cari Cohen

Miami, FL, USA – June 16, 2021 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) West Campus presents “When Light merges with Art” Exhibition by Cari Cohen, in collaboration with Contemporary Art Projects USA, on view from Tuesday, June 17th through Monday, August 20, 2021.

The Exhibition starts with an emblematic Artwork that introduces viewers to the scientific conceptions and technique knowledge of Artist Cari Cohen. In the innovative artworks in the exhibition, there is a new understanding for the artistic shapes positioned into the space. As visual artist Cohen is also an architect and designer, she cleverly manages colors, geometry, and organic shapes in dynamic perspectives, created by light and its reflection on space, in her displayed artworks. Inspired by architectural masters Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry, Cari transforms Art in a new language that shares lines with curves to insert the organic into the angular square, breaking the rational towards the new and fantastic. The display in two walls presents a selection of artworks from a distinct Series: Art + Light on pure Geometry in the first wall and Art + Light on Organic evolving in the second. Illuminated sculptures, facing the glass wall, stand on pedestals or the floor.

Cohen, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, developed her talented creativity as an abstract painter on canvas using colors and shapes, evolving to new proposals where light is the main element that bonds the exhibit. In 2019, represented at Art Santa Fe, NM, by Contemporary Art Projects USA, Cohen successfully exhibited her uniquely exquisite Series Art + Light for the first time. These works are amazing traffic stoppers, as she masterly added the new element light. Now, in her Series Art + Light on Organic evolving, she reaches a new space dimension. She has created a novel visual intensity that reaches a depiction where geometry evolves merging with the organic, creating a new reference in the volume of the piece and its visual treatment.

To address new paths in her creative proposals and best present her Artworks, Cari solved in the Series Art + Light a unique, innovative, practical way to light and hang them, creating an easy to install and maintain box with a rechargeable battery that contains the source of light and is the element on which they are firmly suspended for display on the wall. Cohen’s new Artworks are a miracle of beauty, elegance, balance, design, and technology.
