frank cook

Frank lives and works in Rugby. He has exhibited widely and was awarded an arts development grant by Rugby Borough Council in 2008. As winner of the Rugby Open in the same year, he secured a solo exhibition at The Floor One Gallery. His work features in a number of private collections. Current preoccupations in Frank’s work include the themes of winter, signs and symbols. His images are diverse, relating to landscape, townscape or natural forms. Inventive development is sustained by using bleach, pencil and watercolour. Frank’s work deals with the effects of atmospheric light and the juxtaposition of different visual elements. Colour tends to be muted. Frank strives for active engagement from the viewer and hopes to encourage them to look beyond the obvious and to seek out and explore their own interpretations.
