Carl M. Cochran


Artist’s Statement For several decades the caption of a New York Times article mounted on a metal banner has hung in my studio as a controlling concept. It reads in bold type, “A WORK OF ART SHOULD BE PLANNED BUT NOT TOO DELIBERATELY” and aptly states my philosophy of art. Coming of age in the great depression, at a time when American Art was on the threshold of an exciting period, I was subject to multiple influences which nourished my creativity as I pursued my avocation of art while earning a living as a teacher of language and literature. Born of Scottish ancestry, I readily follow impulses to salvage, restore, record, employ, and preserve diverse elements produced by nature and human beings. I attempt to compose them with imagination into works of art in two or three dimensions, letting serendipity play its part. -- Carl M. Cochran
