Silver by Bernard Cohen

Cohen's work is abstract and reflects a desire to create "the shock of confrontation" which, he argued, could no longer be delivered by figuration. His fascination with pattern and ornament, both organic and man-made, provides a way of portraying the real world in a non-figurative way.

According to Eric Shanes, Cohen's work is "a vivid reflection of the visual, psychological, emotional and technological maelstrom in which we now live".
