The Japanese term Wabi Sabi means "a way of living that focuses on finding beauty within the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay." A good description of the way Ingrid Cohen perceive the world around her.
Having no goal for image or theme, color and experimentation is her only guide. Layer after layer, emulating nature and decay of age, large simple images emerge, always leaving a trace behind, the random marks of time, the real essence of the meaning of existentialism and organic nature of life.
