This year Richard Cook's work was selected for the inaugural exhibition of the re-opening of Tate St Ives.
He has held solo shows at Tate St Ives, Galerie am Savignyplatz - Berlin and the Exchange in Penzance as well as commercial London galleries such as Felix and Spear, Odette Gilbert, Art First, Austin/Desmond - and exhibited in mixed shows at the Hayward and the Serepntine Galleries.
Although my daily walks take me out into the landscape, topography is less important to me than the dynamic of the present moment. Unknown connections and internalised memory are what seem to power my motivation.
The drawings I make on the spot are rapid and calligraphic in quality.
These quick drawings serve as the impulse for the larger studio works.
