In The Shape of Space, Daisy Cook explores two themes - landscape and interior painting - both communicating
notions of containment and absence though form and shape.
Cook's paintings are an emotional response to the world around her; there is subtlety of surface and depth, texture and light. Her landscapes are quiet and contemplative interpretations of natural environments and her interiors are equally as experiential, created by dragging, dripping and pouring oil paint that is rich in earth pigments. In all her work, Cook looks for new methods to build tensions between her shapes, with the paintings made slowly and revealing themselves over time: some areas are ambiguous and veiled, others are clear and sharp.
Daisy Cook has exhibited regularly over the last twenty-three years, both internationally and in the UK. Working from her London studio, she is the youngest daughter of the late Peter Cook and lives in Kentish Town with her husband and daughter.
