Wednesday 24 June 2015
Words Ailis Mara

Monica Cook’s work is as vivid as it is voyeuristic. Her paintings squelch and squish with juicy, uncomfortable details and approach scenes of gluttony and excess with childlike awe.

There’s something compelling about admiring a painting’s beauty while it simultaneously pulls you back in disgust. The Georgia-born Sculptor, Illustrator, Painter and Photographer manages to create juxtaposed imagery laced with absolute joy and occasional eroticism.
