This piece is my interpretation of a small section of an Antonio Corradini sculpture called Modesty/Chastity/Veiled Truth. I have great appreciation for marble sculpture, especially when delicate features like fabric, hair, or detailed patterns are carved into the stone. The seemingly weightless cloth on human flesh details are especially of interest to me, and in this attempt I was trying to reconstruct this effect with the technique that I developed in previous work.
AvRaam (Avraham) Cohen (b. 1968, Tel Aviv) attended university both in Holon, Israel and Brooklyn, NY for Industrial Design. While studying for his Masters at Pratt Institute, Cohen had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in Gaetano Pesce’s studio in NY, where he gained experience working with cold casting techniques and was exposed to a variety of materials.
In 1998, Cohen founded his design and engineering firm, Vertex Product Development Inc. in Great Neck, NY. After years of working with clients developing new products and innovations, his passion for creating art reignited. Cohen is combining his industrial design and manufacturing techniques with his earlier experiences of sculpting, casting, and free-form modeling into his artwork.
