Judy Cooke - New Paintings

First Thursday Reception: September 6, 6 - 8 pm

Artist Talk: Saturday, October 13, 11 am

One of the Northwest's most influential painters, Judy Cooke has explored abstract imagery and the structure of painting for over 30 years. The results of Cooke’s experimentation is work that hovers at the intersection of painting and sculpture, where she often engages with formalism, color field and materiality.

In her new body of work entitled Conversation: Aluminum, Oil, Rubber, Cooke continues her fascination with materials by embracing rubber and aluminum as the medium upon which she subtly sculpts or paints. The result is a richness of texture, form and color with mark making as a prominent element.  Other influences seen throughout Cooke’s work are references to literature, history and art history. Cooke’s work Tablet conjures a writing pad with lines of horizontally irregularly stacked squares, invoking the cut-out and rearranged visual style of Dadaist poetry.
