Biography   Mirit Cohen


Born in Uzbekistan, then part of the USSR, Mirit Cohen created non-objective pencil on paper drawings that convey networks of nerves or dense galaxies. Many of her works suggest a frantic effort to fill the page.

She was of Jewish background and had a tumultuous childhood of living for years as a displaced person in camps until her family was admitted to Israel.

In the 1970s, she came to New York, which was her most productive time, but the lack of acceptance she perceived there caused her mental deterioration. In her last decade, the 1990s, she wrote poetry as well as continued her artwork. Cohen died by suicide, buying a bunch of flowers and jumping off a building.
