Felipe Cohen’s artistic practice encompasses working with everyday objects, collages and videos, ultimately investigating the concept of volume in his works. The artist investigates the construction of space from perfect arranged and pure forms. These pieces hold a precise fit, even when they are only leaning against each other. Cohen’s drawings are clean, exact and volumetric. Even when he works with the bimensional, in his geometric landscapes, the depth is emphasized, allowing for the collages to look like piles of small fragments, positioned on different heights. When utilising everyday materials in his works, Cohen always maintains the scales, as if his idea was materialised from an existing object which will then be intervened. The title of each work is also of importance in the context of his practice; reflecting ideas and revealing interpretations pertaining to each individual artwork.
