Space is a primary component of my work and the consideration of interior space and external design is elemental to the aim of building intimate hand made objects. The Architecture of Space has defined itself as the focus of this artistic exploration.
Sarit Cohen graduated from the Australian National University School of Art as a Ceramics Major, mentored by Alan Watt and Hiroe Swen. She also completed a Diploma in Education at the University of Canberra, which enabled her to practice as a teacher.
Cohen received the Doug Alexander Memorial Award for Decorative Surface with the Canberra Potters' Society and has completed residencies in Denmark and Switzerland. These opportunities have significantly contributed to the development of her work in the areas of paper clay casting and porcelain manipulation. She received a major equipment grant from artsACT which enabled her to carry on with these experiments.
Coen has exhibited solo shows in Canberra, Brisbane and Denmark and has contributed to numerous group and survey shows over the last 15 years, notably the USA, Denmark, Israel and Australia. Her works are in public and private collections in these countries.
