Barrett Art Center presents four solo shows in the Crenson Gallery annually. Artists are selected from over one hundred applicants by leading arts professionals. 

“As a visual storyteller I want the viewer of my work to discover interesting political, social or environmental stories, and it doesn’t matter if we coincide with my point of view. There is not a single way to narrate them, because the viewer has to relate to what I am showing to impact their own experience. 
When I work on each one of them I explore inside my head to discover what is affecting me in that moment. In my process I depend on the mistakes that I make to correct them to make unusual and oneiric landscapes. I generally look for images that I love and combine them with memories of my life to tell the stories. “

Santiago Cohen is a Mexican/American artist living in Jersey CIty, NJ.
