RICHARD COOK - ARTIST
My interest is in the play of colour and texture as they revolve around nature and people. I use digital software to re-work sketches, painting and photographic images to explore the play of colour, texture and line that presents itself. It's a multi-layered approach whereby original sketches and photographs may be re-worked, re-painted and then re-worked a number of times till completion of the final image - a process that can take many months. My aim is to delight and surprise the viewer - for them to see and feel an abstraction of the familiar re-presented from a new perspective.
