“This show is an eye opener for me. At 92, it taught me I can still learn from 5 year olds with no art training.” – Ben Cohen

“I am “Inspired” by the spontaneous line, uninhibited brilliant color, fearless use of form, and the very direct self expression exhibited by our very young self taught artists – I have learned a great deal from their work. – Ben Cohen

“My paintings range from expressive realism to semi-abstract;
and I work in pastel, gouache and transparent watercolor.”

“I try to make the viewer “wake up” to life as we know it. I do this by the use of ordinary subject matter and hopefully an exciting handling of color, content and format. I want to give my message in a direct easy-to-understand manner.”

“I look for the something in areas and situations thought of as “nothingness”, and I invite the viewer to participate in these situations. Sometimes I do people with scenes and sometimes scenes with people. For the most part I feel that much of the so-called nothingness can be uplifting and thought-provoking.”

“I feel the artist must continue to grow and convey a message.”
