This Year's Juror: John Cook, Highland Village, TX
There is a spontaneous nature to his paintings that conveys his need to quickly achieve the essence of light as it dances, pierces, careens and bounces to find its way throughout the subject. From still life to portraits, landscapes, architecture, and his native-Texas western imagery, nothing is too small or too large for John to attempt as is demonstrated in his diverse range of subject matter.
Most canvases are produced in his Highland Village, Texas studio where he has resided for 31 years. However, painting outdoors often presents some of his favorite small format “jewels’ and many are kept in his personal collection.
Exhibitions include the prestigious W H Patterson gallery in London, with members of Parliament visiting. As well as shows in New York, Colorado, California, Florida, South Carolina, Indiana, Arizona, and many venues from Texas and Oklahoma. Also, John has had 12 annual solo shows at SW Gallery, Dallas.
John was born in Dallas, Texas and attended school at the University of Texas at Arlington and the Art Center School in Los Angeles, where he received a Bachelor of Professional Arts Degree.
