David Cooke, is a graduate of Hanover College (Hanover, IN) with a Bachelors of Science Degree. Cooke earned a MFA in 1970 from The Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD, Columbus, OH) in 2018.
Cooke’s works are based on memories from travels, both to Cuba and around the US. Using a limited palette of eight colors, and painting on unbleached canvas, Cooke applies a reductive process, of paint and graphite, to convey two of nature’s most common elements… rocks and water. The rocks seem to be permanent immovable objects. However, with time, the water will inevitably erode, reduce, or move the rocks. This become a metaphor for life and relationships.
