Liz Cohen is president of hob’art, Hoboken’s artists’ cooperative, and a mixed media artist who enjoys using found and recycled materials to create cross-cultural artifacts.
The finished dolls are created from fabrics, found objects, other materials collected locally and during her travels all over the world, and from recyclable materials. They simulate objects from tribal cultures. She is creating a new culture based on these doll creatures and/or artifacts. Ms. Cohen is creating a language and family structure for this culture.
She incorporates photography and painting into her work as well. Frequently she combines her three and two-dimensional work in installations that reflect the universality of this doll culture.
Ms. Cohen’s latest solo exhibition, “Mother Tongue,” will be open to the public at Ceres Gallery, 547 West 27th St., New York, from Sept. 27 until Oct. 24.
An opening reception to meet the artist will be held on Thursday, Oct. 1, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The gallery hours are from 12 – 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and Thursday until 8 p.m.
