Sarit Cohen

Open Studio

Join Sarit Cohen at their Open Studio on the 5th of November at 2 Arndell Street (the corner of Fulton St and Catchpole Street), Macquarie.

Sarit is a ceramicst who makes uniques pieces in her recognisable style. Sarit has contributed to numerous group & survey shows over the last 20 years, notably the USA, Denmark, Kecskemet, Hungary, Israel & Australia. Her works are in public & private collections in these countries.

Sarit’s work bares the influence of her childhood spent in Israel of Indian & Turkish parents. Her memories of the desert, its surfaces & dry atmosphere are constantly evidenced in her objects. This, together with an increasing curiosity about her Indian background, forms the basis of her research. Although she has lived in Australia for more than 30 years, the conflict in the Middle East has been with her constantly & continues to emerge in her work by embracing iconography, design & stories from other cultures in the region. Visitors can expect works available for purchase that Sarit has been working on for the past few years.
