ADAM D. COHEN is a Raleigh, NC-based visual artist who works primarily with the human figure, a shared reference point between artist and audience that allows creative choices to be traced, like the reinterpretation of a familiar song. In the same way that fiction can be truer than fact, he distorts forms and descriptive color until something essential is cracked open and the images take on the quality of memories or dreams. He sees his work as a dialogue fueled by his own experiences and emotions yet ripe for viewers to recognize their own.

He received an MFA at the Savannah College of Art & Design and his work is held in private collections throughout the country.
