Artist Profile

Chris Cook
Born: Hong Kong

Chris Cook's paintings explore the instability of colour, a subtle shift of hues and intensity when juxtaposed with others. The cropped and repeated geometric shapes, especially triangles in various forms, are used to suggest movement as the diagonal lines lead one’s eye around and outside in her paintings.

In her paintings, part of a shape extends right to the painting edges to suggest that it might be part of something else; another picture alongside the same series. She also creates 'quiet movement' in her works, balancing tension from the uncompromising triangles with quiet and muted colours, as if to anchor the shapes from floating away.
