Miles uses found materials, garbage really - what people throw away, to make interesting and thought provoking pieces of art. You will see that plastic bread bag in a whole new light!
Miles Cohen is a retired psychiatrist with a lifelong interest in all art forms, but with a primary interest in modern art.
His works integrate an interest in the abstract with a deep environmental sensitivity, making use of the discards and castoffs from both the natural and manufactured worlds. Anything from Saran Wrap, plastics, and store receipts to lawn cuttings and plant seeds, are incorporated with acrylic paint to bring together captivating, multimedia works that cast the unwanted in an appealing, surprising and often humorous light.
He brings a truly creative twist to today's mantra of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
