Daisy Cook lives and has her Studio in North West London. She has exhibited regularly over the past 25 years both internationally and in the U.K. Her work is held in many collections including the Bank of England.
In her recent paintings Daisy Cook explores two themes - Landscape and interior painting - both communicating the notion of containment and absence through form and shape.
Cook’s paintings are an emotional response to the world around her; there is a subtlety of surface and depth, texture and light. Her Landscapes are quiet and contemplative interpretations of natural enviroments and her interiors are equally experiential, created by dragging, dripping and pouring paint that is rich in earth pigments.
In all her work, Cook looks for new methods to build tensions between her shapes,with the paintings made slowly and revealing themselves over time: some areas are ambiguous and veiled, others are clear and sharp.
