“Cohn deals with the delicate inner balance of the sculpture, as well as movement and movement potential inherent in the material itself, while in the bronze work the discussion is more extreme and prominent, while in the terracotta, the force resides in dynamic texture and inherent vitality. In the course of working with the concepts of movement and form, a process of striving and reaching the abstract, expressed in sculptures such as “a single sailor” or “dilemma” or “dancing bird” (most of them were made towards the end of the 90s, 2000) In contrasting but also overlapping forces of dynamism and concretization”, describes Irena Gordon, art curator.
