Oliver Cook

Born: 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.

Oliver Cook presents his second solo exhibition with The Gallery in June 2023 – Momentary Flow.
