By drawing with a brush rather than a pencil, Cook achieves the loose and free style that characterizes his work. Never belabored, each painting reflects his passion to catch a mood with an interplay of light and shade. Nothing is too large or small to attempt, as reflected in his diverse range of subject matter: from still life to portraits to landscapes, architecture, and native Texas-Western imagery. “A kind of impatient realism,” is how Cook describes his paintings. Action and energy permeate his canvases and there is a spontaneous nature to his work that retells the artist’s need to quickly achieve the essence of light as it dances, pierces, careens, and bounces to find its way throughout the subject.
