Robert Cook, a self-taught artist, was born in 1948 and has painted professionally since 1989.
Traditional landscapes as well as contemporary and figurative works are his subjects. Cook uses acrylic and layered glazing on textured canvas to complete an old-world finish that most mistake for oils.
"When words can't be found to convey thoughts, emotions, dreams or desires, art relays the message in a poetic and vivid form. Visual art can mentally transport us to a pastoral setting of peace and quiet, or it's abstract shapes with hard edges, jagged lines or circular forms can open our mind's eye to the curiosity of self expression. And, just as personalities bring uniqueness to a relationship, so do different styles of art." - Robert Cook
Robert Cook has perfected a unique technique of hand painting and embellishing each one of his canvas prints. Each image is treated during several hours of hand embellishment that creates a copy as close to the original as possible.
The landscapes Robert Cook creates in particular are very calming and peaceful. Robert Cook paints "moods", impressions of late evening, early morning, or feelings of melancholy or lonesomeness. Robert Cook describes the moods as "The feeling you get when fall comes and the shadows change."
Robert Cook's paintings are found in numerous private and corporate collections, both nationally and internationally. His work is also represented in prestigious galleries in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
