Abstract - Colour,Texture & Contemporary Landscapes
The new collection from Sheffield artist John Paul Cooke.

"The work I create is an abstract form derived from still life, floral or landscape imagery. Colours, textures and visual images inspire me to create highly personal, unique works of art, relevant to daily life experiences and observations.
Inspiration is generally drawn from the earthy textural tones of the peak district and the bright light of St Ives, Cornwall.

My work takes days, often weeks to complete.
The layers of paint give history and meaning to the painting….
creating clarity, texture, tone and movement in its conclusion.
Although simple in appearance and pleasing to the eye, each work is complex and carefully crafted … A Pandora’s box of images, texture & colourevoking reaction, emotion, contemplationand above all to an enquiring mind….
