About The Artist

Artist Statement

Impact, not realism, is the aim of sculptor Claudia Cohen. By exploring figurative and narrative subjects, her work raises questions about the condition of being human. Her style has been described as comic surrealism, a style that blends objective reality with mythology and flights of fancy.
Her sculpted beings, in bronze and ceramic and oil, portray a magical cast of characters; human, animal, or a fantastical progeny from a universe of her own devising. Combining humor and pathos, the works involve the viewer in this mysterious world of the artist’s intuition.
“ To be able to shape my dreams and fantasies in tangible form, to see what two and three- dimensional forms those mysterious sparks form within my subconscious will take is for me what the search is all about. And creating these works allows me to share these visions with others

  ICB Artist Claudia Cohen has been creating since early years.

       After studies at the Corcoran School of Art and George Washington University, Washington, DC she obtained her bachelors of art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in conjunction with Tufts University.  At the time and for many years her focus was in sculpture. Now it’s figurative and narrative painting, with the help of studies with  COM’s reverend  teacher Chester Arnold.

         Her creations are multilayered and reflect her life and inspirations. Renaissance portraiture also underpins her work. Claudia takes her audience on a narrative journey filled with interpretative reflections and fantasies.

            Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the US and internationally.  She has received numerous grants and awards, including the George Sugarman Foundation, and several Marin Arts Council Grants.

In 2023, her painting Nevermore was part of the De Young Open.
