Oliver CookBorn: 1992
Place of Birth: Bristol
Oliver Cook is an artist creating sculptural forms and functional objects in alabaster. Using everyday objects such as vases and bowls as a starting point, his work explores the relationship between light and the translucent properties of the stone. When creating a piece he often has a specific time of day in mind. It could be when the sun falls in a certain corner of the house or a place that always gets first light in the morning. Often somewhere a piece could be placed to catch and gently diffuse light amongst its surrounding.
Cook’s technique and process is self-taught and has developed organically, drawing upon traditional carving techniques and skills learned in ceramics. All pieces are made by hand in his Manchester studio.
Oliver Cook will be the subject of a solo presentation in September 2021.
