Will Cooke opens his show “Still Lyfe” at China Heights this Friday night, so we stopped by late last week and caught some of the last additions to his new collection of unique abstract work. Will recently painted the Project Ugly billboard (coverage coming this week) and this new body of work is a big step forward in his process.
“Throughout ‘Still Lyfe’, Cooke paints from a collection of his own still life photographs. Considering discarded items that form crisp slaking lines, shapes, colours and reflections. Each object is left as is, their balance untouched, so as to produce a final image which has not been engineered.”
More on Will here.
