Morose Modern Art
Cooke documents the degeneration of humankind, as seen in the piece 'In Da Club - The Vision,' which presents a ghostly, morose and depressing subject that almost melts into the painting.
Cooke is no stranger to high-profile exhibitions, as his work has been shown at the Tate Britain, the MoMA and the Guggenheim Museum.
Implications - Cooke explains painting as about so much more than just the final product. While making images is the end goal, he sees the process as a bountiful journey to be experienced, a method of learning and solving problems. The end result is nothing more than a conclusion.
