"What? I Didn't Say Anything"
by sabine7 / September 4, 2008


Arthur Cohen's full-scale figurative paintings of a Korean Buddhist monk on a rope are part of a new exhibition entitled Now What? at Jack the Pelican Presents. The artist had a sturdy, knotted rope installed in his studio as an exercise climber. When he made the acquaintance of Sunim (which means teacher), this monk wanted to try the rope; it turns out he is a natural. In contrast, Cohen includes a series of self-portraits in the exhibition. The collection of paintings shows two men from very different backgrounds coming together in a unique way to obtain a state of zen.
