Jessica Cook Artist Statement 2023-2024

I have always been inspired by the varieties of expression in people and animals. Creating figurative works helps me observe closely, to move beyond first impressions and connect more deeply with our world. I paint in a gestural style and like to portray movement and energy, whether I’m loosely depicting people, flowers, or birds in motion. While I’m trained in traditional painting techniques, I will add collage, thick texture, words, and calligraphic marks to my paintings. Ultimately, I’m inspired by the wildness of nature, aiming for a sense of abandon and freedom in my work.
